SALENA ZITO: Walpin’s Firing Reflects Money’s Role in Politics.

In the political patronage system, if big-time donors think they are being harassed – which may simply mean they have run afoul of the law or of reporting requirements – they are too-often forgiven, depending on the seriousness of the offense and how likely it is to be publicly reported or prosecuted.

The press could help keep things honest, but we all know that the press is working with fewer resources and fewer readers – and Walpin’s firing is not a YouTube sort of story.

Well, that and they’re doing their best to protect Obama from any bad news. (Link was wrong before. Fixed now. Sorry!)
