Letter To The Editor: Senator McConnell, Secretary Chao And The Donald

Dear Editor,

I believe Majority Leader Mitch McConnell came to Washington as an honorable man. A former Judge from Kentucky with high ethics; when he arrived in Washington in 1985. Subsequently, I was tasked, as senior aide to Senator Storm Thurmond, to assist he and his staff in establishing their Senate offices.

Fast-forward 18 years and he seems to be shelling for Donald Trump. I haven’t heard anyone connect the dots of his conflict of interest that his wife serves in Trump’s Cabinet. Unfortunately, they, like many in the Trump orbit or influence, may end up tainted by association.

While politics may make strange bedfellows, this is increasingly uncomfortable in the age of Stormy Daniels.
