Grievances past, remembered Posted by: Jon Henke

Reading this Media Matters story on the allegation that Obama had done "political favor" for "Democratic fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko by writing letters to state and local government officials in support of a Chicago housing project proposed by Rezko's company" - Media Matters disputes it, claiming that since the letter was not solicited, it wasn't really a "favor" — I was reminded of last year's Lefty charge that Senator George Allen had violated ethics rules in regard to stock options and a letter written for a constituent.
Acknowledgments, corrections or retractions from the Left? Non-existent. So far as I can tell, not one of the above-mentioned outlets bothered to mention that their charges had turned out to be bunk.
And then there's Bill Frist, who was also accused of major ethics violations by many of the same actors noted above, only to be cleared this year. The ethics violations occasioned loud comment from the Left. Being cleared? Resounding silence.
Just something to remember the next time the Leftosphere catches a Righty in an error and feigns superiority.
