Wik­iLeaks should be read

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND VOICES - Michael Vance Ernest Sr., Ca­tonsville

What­ever one’s in­di­vid­ual take is on the nu­mer­ous Wik­iLeaks email reve­la­tions, it clearly has pro­vided ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion for we in the elec­torate (“Wik­iLeaks emails will poi­son Hil­lary Clin­ton’s pres­i­dency,” Oct. 20). Those that would pre­fer to see it sup­pressed would have us be ill in­formed and lack­ing in the crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion needed to make one of the most se­ri­ous de­ci­sions in our life­time.

Wik­iLeaks has pro­vided a wide-open win­dow into the cor­rup­tion within the Demo­cratic Party, the Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee along with Bill and Hil­lary Clin­ton in gen­eral and most specif­i­cally Ms. Clin­ton, her co­horts and cam­paign staff. Not for­get­ting the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion (the White House it­self, U.S. Depart­ment of State, In­ter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice, U.S. Depart­ment of Jus­tice and FBI) has lost lots of cred­i­bil­ity in the eyes of many.

Un­for­tu­nately, there are prob­a­bly lots of folks in the elec­torate who have no real idea of what Wik­iLeaks is or what the var­i­ous can­di­dates’ plat­forms are com­prised of and will con­tinue to make their ill-in­formed vot­ing de­ci­sions sim­ply based on whether there are “D” or “R” no­ta­tions on the bal­lot.
