WikiLeaks should be read

Speaking to the press aboard their campaign plane in Pittsburgh, Hillary Clinton said she has nothing to say about WikiLeaks, "but we should be concerned about what the Russians are trying to do to our election." Oct. 22, 2016. (C-SPAN)

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" and maybe Green and Libertarian notations on the ballot.

Emails can be hazardous to one's political health. Lesson learned.
