Dear Editor:

Recently your Commentary Section had an article, "The Lying Double Standard, Government officials get away with deceit the private sector doesn't tolerate," The most damaging lie in government is that 99% of Congress persons always say that the money and favors provided by special interests and lobbyists have no effect on the votes they cast on legislation. Sure. I guess the special interests are private sector stupid people who spend millions of dollars with no expectation of benefit!

Until there is effective campaign finance reform, our government will continue to be owned by special interests. Why is prostitution by women illegal but prostitution by Congress is not? Rep. Weiner is not the only "Emperor" who has no clothes.
