Let my try to understanding something I may have missed. Lying seems to be accepted in the case of a woman seeking to be the next senator from Mass. Huge sums of money being donated to her campaign. What harm can come from telling a little lie about her background and claiming to be a minority and using that claim to get some favors from affirmative action laws? Let me turn your attention to an Annie Dookhan that is a minority and lied about her background. She was hired to test drug samples from captured criminal elements. Ask the people of Boston and surrounding towns if any harm may come when hundreds of criminals are turned loose on their streets. I can remember a time when someone was proved to be a liar and continues in the lie, they were no longer trusted.
