Believe it or not, politicians in The United States have occasionally been known to engage in hypocritical behavior.
I know, I know, I was just as surprised as you were to find out. But it is true and we will all be a lot happier if we can just accept it.
One example of less-than-honest political behavior came to us this week from US congressman, and suspected Death Eater, Trey Gowdy.
In addition to his ongoing work for He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Gowdy is also the chairman of congress’s Special Committee on Benghazi.
This is the committee that spent the latter half of last week grilling former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton about the American lives that were lost on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya.
Demonstrating his ability to zero in on issues that others might overlook (#sarcasm), Gowdy spent much of Clinton’s hearings discussing (gasp) her email account.
Gowdy, just like virtually every other GOP politician this past year, chose to harass the presidential hopeful for using a private email account to send messages that were specific to her public duties within the State Department.
Gowdy had no problem recycling these unoriginal accusations against Clinton during her hearing. However, certain details that have no come to light that indicate that the South Carolina congressman is in no position to lecture anyone on their private email accounts.
According to a report published on the popular left-leaning blog Occupy Democrats, “Benghazi Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has been exposed for having his own personal email server at treygowdy.com.”
The site points out that there is admittedly nothing sinister about a politician holding a private email server for campaigning purposes. However, there is no evidence to suggest that Gowdy has refrained from using this private email to send publicly relevant emails during his career as a United States congressman.
“Requests for comment by both Alternet and Correct The Record‘s David Brock were both ignored by the Gowdy camp, which is highly indicative that he does use his personal email for Congressional work- if he had nothing to hide, why wouldn’t he just say so,” the Occupy article stated.
This all still conjecture at this point, but the point that the article makes is an interesting one. Why doesn’t Gowdy just release a statement saying that he never used his personal email account to send publicly pertinent messages? It would be a great chance to laude his own integrity, while giving him another chance to attack Clinton’s.
He has, however, chosen to remain silent.
Does this mean that he does indeed have something to hide? Time will tell on that score but in the meantime we at Carbonated TV would like to wish Congressman Gowdy all the luck in the world for his upcoming Potions final exam.
