OK, Now Which is the Party of Moral Relativism?

From the Post:

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.), appearing on the same program, said people should wait, but if there were an indictment, she hoped it would be for "a crime and not some perjury technicality where they couldn't indict on the crime."

Hutchison described someone being tripped up "because they said something in the first grand jury and then maybe they found new information or they forgot something, and they tried to correct that in a second grand jury."

On Clinton/Lewinsky:

In 1999, however, she stood with Republicans in voting to remove President Clinton for grand jury perjury and obstruction of justice in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

By the way, here's an interesting fact on Hutchinson:

Kay Bailey Hutchison vaulted to national attention in 1993 when she wrested from Democrats a U.S. Senate seat that had been in their hands since 1875. Her drubbing of interim Sen. Bob Krueger, a Democrat appointed to the seat once held by Lloyd Bentsen, not only made her Texas' first woman senator but also marked the first time since Reconstruction that both Texas Senate seats were held by Republicans. Dubbed a rising star in national GOP circles, her climb was stalled when just days after her election she was accused of using state employees and resources for political gain during her 2 1/2-year tenure as state treasurer. She was indicted in 1993 on criminal ethics charges _ which she said were politically-motivated by Democrats. She was acquitted in February 1994 when state prosecutors, disheartened by the judge's pre-trial rulings, refused to present their case. Hutchison's legal travails carried little weight with Texas voters. She won re-election to a full six-year Senate term in 1994, polling 61 percent of the vote against Democrat Richard Fisher.
