Commentary: Katehi’s Wealth and Power Protects Her From Real Consequences

By Sean Raycraft The wealthy and powerful play by a different set of rules than the rest of us. We see it manifest in the political world, the media, and the criminal justice system. The Linda Katehi affair is no different. Those of you who know me, know that I work for a grocery...
