When the news media runs an article or news story concerning an elected official it is easy to identify the perpetrators political party affiliation. It the person is Republican, we are fed the line, "cultural of corruption" in the Republican Party. If the perpetrator is a Democrat, there is absolutely no mention of the person(s) political party affiliation, zip, zero, nadda. There is a total omission of the word "Democrat" whenever a Democrat is in violation of the law. Let a Republican break the law, and the news media drags the whole Republican Party into the story attempting to share quilt among all Republicans, past, present, and future. While the Democrats enjoy 100% absolution from the news media.
