While we're on the subject of scandals, let's revisit an old one - the Henry Cisneros scandal. Presumably, the reason why we investigate scandals is to punish the malefactors and adjust laws that had loopholes. Also, to provide enough oversight to put future malefactors on notice. So, that's why it is so frustrating to hear that the Democrats are trying to cover up the report of this decade-old investigation because of rumors that it will unveil evidence that the Clinton administration was siccing the IRS on their political opponents. Don't we deserve to know whether or not this was happening? If it wasn't, much better to get that clear so sly innuendos won't ricochet around the Internet. And, if it is true, much better to know now before we vote this same crew into office again.
