Hypocrisy and a Double Standard?

Food for thought....

In 2007, when Congress asked the Bush administration for emails surrounding the firing of eight U.S. attorneys, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales revealed that many of the emails requested could not be produced because they were sent on a non-government email server.  The officials had used the private domain gwb43.com, a server run by the Republican National Committee. Two years later, it was revealed that 22 million emails were deleted, which was considered by some to be a violation of the Presidential Records Act. The 2007 White House was under investigation and they potentially tampered with evidence and violated the law.

In July of this year, we had Donald Trump, a Presidential candidate of a major party that has five children with three different women which was ignored by the media. Would a woman running for President with five children from three different men have been equally ignored?

Amen blogger. Women have long been held to a different standard. So has Hillary Clinton. We have not come as far as we think as a nation.
