MoveOn: Paris Hilton Served More Time than Lewis Libby

Big deal. She served more time than Sandy Berger, too, but MoveOn doesn’t seem to care about that.

Statement by Eli Pariser, Executive Director, Political Action

“President Bush is not above the law. Congress must hold him accountable.
President Bush let the only person convicted for lying about the Iraq war,
Scooter Libby, go free,” said Eli Pariser, Executive Director of
Political Action. “Paris Hilton served more jail time than he will,”
concluded Pariser.

In 2003 Bush said: “[I]f there is a leak out of my administration, I want to
know who it is. And if the person has violated law, the person will be taken
care of.”

Richard Armitage leaked Plame’s name not Lewis Libby, and doing so wasn’t a crime. Patrick Fitzgerald acknowledged that fact. Anyone who acts self-righteously indignant about Lewis Libby but says nothing about Sandy Berger’s sentence doesn’t have any credibility.
