A Study in Contrasts

Posted by DavidNYC

One man is a governor whose entire career revolves around his ties to lobbyists - in fact, he was one himself. The other man is a gubernatorial aspirant, with as clean a record as they come, and a history of fighting corruption.

One man gets praise from the New York Times. The other is knocked. Care to guess which is which?

But wait, it gets even better: The ex-lobbyist governor is roundly praised for his lobbying connections. The aspiring governor, meanwhile, is attacked for accepting a whopping three donations from lobbyists.

Would it help if I told you that the first guy is a Republican, while the second guy is a Democrat? I thought it might.
