Letter: Was Hillary Clinton a ‘Carpetbagger’?

Thursday, February 27, 2014

To the Editor:

Peter Hoe Burling (“Scott Brown: Carpetbagger,” Forum, Feb. 18) claims Scott Brown is a “carpetbagger of the first rank.” This reminds me of when Hillary Clinton decided to run for the U.S. Senate from New York and subsequently bought a house there in September 1999, creating her first connection to the state. She ran and was elected in the fall of 2000.

Did Mr. Burling write to the Valley News back then claiming Mrs. Clinton was a “carpetbagger of the first rank”?
