The secret diaries of Clinton and Rabbitte

I see Hilary Clinton is in trouble about whether she fully complied with federal laws requiring government officials to preserve written communications involving official business.

Once again we see how real politicians in real democracies take regulations and laws seriously. Clinton is being put under great pressure to explain her actions.

Compare the American response with our system.

When Pat Rabbitte was a minister he casually admitted that he kept a secret diary to circumvent FOI law.

Nobody raised an eyebrow, no State agency asked any questions. The fact that Irish politicians can so casually bypass laws/regulations with arrogant impunity tells us what kind of ‘democracy’ we live in.
