Politics Thursday: Investi-Gate: 1,000+ Vs. 15
I'm curious what folks think of the numbers in this paragraph from Investi-Gate:
"This is not the approach the GOP Congress took when Bill Clinton occupied the Oval Office. Since 1997, the House Government Reform committee has issued over 1000 subpoenas related to allegations of misconduct involving the Clinton administration or the Democratic partyâ€”compared to just 15 related to Bush administration or Republican abuses. The seemingly endless probes of the Clinton administration turned up little in the way of corruption, and stymied the Republican revolution: In the 1998 midterm elections, with the Lewinsky scandal in the news, Democrats picked up seats in Congress."
1,000 vs. 15. That's all I'm really curious about. Assuming those numbers are accurate, why do you think they are they so one sided? Those numbers really jumped out at me more than anything else in this piece.
