Letter: Clinton vs puritans
Tuesday 15 September 1998
Sir: The US Congress, in releasing the Starr report on to the Internet, are guilty of astonishing hypocrisy. How can those politicians complain about pornography being available on the Internet when they themselves have placed on the net a sexually explicit report. How can children be prevented from seeing it? A simple search against the name Clinton will enable any child to view its contents.
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the only purpose of the Starr report, having found no evidence of financial impropriety on the President's part, was to cause him as much embarrassment as possible.
