Clinton’s Corruption No Problem For Career Politician Catherine Cortez Masto
Embattled Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton remains Catherine Cortez Masto’s candidate despite increasingly scandalous revelations about Clinton’s corrupt and possibly illegal actions. With an FBI investigation into Clinton’s use of a secret home email server ongoing, serious questions have been raised about possibly unethical blurring of the lines between her family’s foundation and her work as Secretary of State. While Clinton insists there was no wrongdoing, she refuses to say whether her husband will cut ties with the foundation if she is elected president, an idea that ethics experts consider to be a dangerous proposition:
“As for whether her husband, Bill Clinton, would cut his ties to the foundation, she said that “we will cross that bridge if and when we get there.” (“Hillary Clinton begins vice presidential search”, CNN, Eric Bradner, June 9, 2016)
This raises serious questions for supporters like Catherine Cortez Masto. While treating ethics laws with contempt has been common practice for the Clintons for decades, it raises serious questions that someone who served as Nevada’s top law enforcement official is willing to dismiss the shady and crooked behavior displayed by the Clintons on a daily basis. Much like her presidential candidate, Catherine Cortez Masto clearly considers the rule of law and public accountability to come second to her party’s electoral success. Her support for politicians like Hillary Clinton shows that Catherine Cortez Masto is disqualified from representing Nevada families in the United States Senate.
