Donald Sterling's record isn't "sterling," and past sins and law suits should have gotten him bumped from ownership, but a private conversation with his mistress? How many men would be fired across the country for that? Many. (Watch out for vindictive girlfriends and ex-wives, fellas.) This sets a terrible precedent as did the firing of a CEO who voted for marriage between a man and woman. Thought police beyond anything China and the USSR came up with.
"It seems his “girlfriend,” Ms. Stiviano, decided to tape a private conversation between the two. Apparently, Ms. Stiviano had recently been sued by the estranged wife of Mr. Sterling, so there is some potential nefarious motive involved. Furthermore, the taping of a conversation without consent of the other party is illegal under California statute. There is some question as to whether he knew he was being recorded. Let’s assume for the moment he didn’t.
The national outrage against Mr. Sterling has come from an act that could be illegal and inadmissible in a court of law. Nevertheless, the court of public opinion has tried and convicted Mr. Sterling of being a jerk."
Harry Reid, on the other hand, is an elected official, and has maligned and insulted millions of Americans by declaring Tea Party people terrorists. John Kerry, our Secretary of State, has insulted and maligned the people of Israel. Hypocrisy is coming up with the spring flowers.Our president’s insults are just too many to note here.
