Witch hunt: The Chicago Sun-Times once again revels in its partisanship by demanding the public release of the medical records of Senator Mark Kirk while ignoring the records of Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr.
For the Times, Phil Kadner is all upset that the U.S. government should be expected to pay for the medical bills and recovery costs for Illinois Senator Mark Kirk, a Republican who suffered a stroke last year and has since been making a steady recovery.
But the same left-wing Old Media hack isn’t calling for the records of Democrat Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., who claims he has “bi-polar” disorder and was out of the public eye for most of the year before finally resigning in disgrace just ahead of a federal investigation into his theft of campaign funds.
The differences between the two cases are stark, indeed. With Senator Kirk, we have a navy veteran who served his nation proudly then became a U.S. Senator. He’s done much to earn a little help from the American people. Further, during his stroke recovery he’s been working from home. The latter a fact no one disputes.
Kirk is not under indictment. There are no investigations into his actions on anything. Regardless of what you think of his voting record, by every account Senator Mark Kirk has been a good and faithful servant to the American people and the people of Illinois.
