    Wait a minute...how did this letter come to the attentionof the public?

    So me get this straight.

    A demcorat writes a letter to two government oversight groups...

    that letter is them made public by a REPUBLICAN PR group, and the DEMCORAT is called into question for it being made public?

    Either I do not understand this article, or this makes like no sense whatever.

    I don't know what the law is on making this sort of stuff public so I 'm not sure any laws were broken... Maybe Chuck shouldn't have written the letter.

    It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Schumer is possibly the largest asshole in Congress.

    So a public figure writes a letter to a public agency and a third party makes the public aware of the letter's existence, and you attack the 3rd party?

    That makes no sense as far as I can tell.

    Chuck did not make that letter public...Republican operatives did.

    If I write a letter to a company in this day in age how can I expect it to be private? What's I'm getting at is what laws were broken? If you can show me where a law was broken then I will agree with you.

    By the way, both sides are doing everything they can to expose the other side....that's the world we live in.

    So when a democrat or liberal uses the system to "expose" a republican or conservative, no problem? But when the reverse is true, we have a problem?

    Schumer has already responded to this, saying that it's like blaming the fire on the person who calls 911.

    Oh? Do tell, I'm sure you can site many an example.

    Schumer did nothing wrong. Maybe he should have let questionable practices slide... No?

    And the article is just more repub smear... I doubt Chuck is worrying too much about it.

    And he may well have one of the safest seats in the Senate.
