Occurrances that require explanation

To the editor:

Re the June 10-23 issue.

Being politically, legally and financially uneducated, I implore someone to explain to me two things:

• How can our elected reps not punish former House Speaker Gene Chandler for his actions (Editorial, “Profiles in capriciousness”)? I would be glad myself to have a $2,000 fine to receive $68,000. And who knows how much more, if any, has been received? “Nice” guy or not, ethics have taken a beating – again.

• A Mr. Rosa is working here, even though he’s an illegal from Mexico (“Imagine there’s no borders – the high court can”). I’ve thought for a long time it is illegal to employ illegal aliens. Also, they may pay no taxes or Social Security tax, as how does an illegal get a Social Security number? How does he sue anyone? He has no status. What about the firm that employed him? Do they get off scot-free? The fact that the state Supreme Court ruled for Rosa and his recovery of lost wages only makes me shake my head in wonder.
