Don’t we expect this from politicians?

A member of Congress, Rep. Anthony Weiner, has asked the FBI to stop the investigation as to whether or not Roger Clemens committed perjury. Weiner said that the FBI had more important things to deal with and that,

“Roger Clemens has been shamed. I think the public record is replete with examples of how he did not likely tell the truth. What is the public benefit of continuing with an FBI investigation?”

Should Congress of gotten involved in the mess? Maybe, but probably not. But they did, and perjury is a serious crime. If the Feds are going after Barry Bonds, they HAVE to go after Clemens, because, as Weiner said, “the public record is replete with examples of how he did not likely tell the truth.” For them to go after Bonds but back off of Clemens would raise HUGE issues of racism.

So, why did Weiner call the Feds off of Clemens, a former New York Yankee, but make no mention of Barry Bonds?

The answer is that Weiner is running for mayor of New York City in 2009.
