Nelson’s as guilty as Jim

EDITOR

Every article about Jim Traficant carries with it the convictions he suffered.

A Dec. 31 story stated, “the jury believed Traficant took kickbacks from local businessmen”. In the same publication under Nation & World digest, there is an article about several attorneys general taking action against Nebraska’s political deal in the federal health reform bill. As I recall, Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson stated that if there was any change in the Senate bill, he would retract his vote for passage. I don’t know about you, but this sounds like “bribery” to me. Shouldn’t this be considered a “kickback”, or does the federal government carry a double standard.
