CHUCKAQUIDDICK: WHERE’S THE MSM?

My latest column on the Democratic dumpster diving campaign by two of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s former opposition research staffers, who abused Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele’s Social Security number to obtain his private credit report, is up. (Thanks to Hugh Hewitt for coining the scandal name.) Excerpt:

Law enforcement officials are taking this criminal intrusion into private records deadly seriously. But left-wing partisans are nowhere to be found. Steele’s staff tells me that longtime crusader against identity theft Sen. Schumer, who denies having any knowledge of the scheme, has still issued no apology for the abuse of Steele’s personal data. And there has been no outcry from the ACLU, the champions of clean campaigns, or any major national newspaper editorial board.

(Protecting privacy only seems to matter to liberals when it comes to 14-year-old girls seeking abortions behind their parents’ backs, illegal aliens seeking sanctuary from the police, and registered sex offenders objecting to community registration requirements.)

Needless to say, if it had been Republicans involved in this outrageous breach of privacy and the target had been a liberal minority politician, it would be front-page news.

The New York Times has yet to run a single article–not even a buried news brief–since news of the resignation of Schumer’s two staffers broke on Sept. 20. (Here’s the last time the paper ran any news story mentioning Steele.) Don’t bother writing ombudsman Byrone Calame (emphasis on LAME). Instead, send your complaints here: news-tips@nytimes.com.

The latest development: Republican senators and candidates are bombarding Schumer with letters seeking assurance that their credit reports haven’t been accessed. Hey, we should all be worried about the Democrats’ privacy invaders. If you’d like to send your own letter, here’s Chuck’s contact info:

Washington, DC
313 Hart Senate Building
Washington, DC 20510
Phone: 202-224-6542
Fax: 202-228-3027
TDD: 202-224-0420

Ed Morrissey is on the same wavelength. See his new piece in The Daily Standard, The Man in the Mirror, for some tough questions Chuck Schumer should ask…himself.
