Robert O'Leary's politics in line with his character

Unlike many who have accused the Cape Cod Times of leaning to the left or to the right, I view the Times as somewhat of an instigator when it comes to airing a political fight.

For example, I'm amused with the for-and-against comments concerning state Sen. Jeffrey Perry; it seems to be nonstop. I believe the spotlight that shines on and targets his past as a police officer was turned on by members and powerful opponents of his own party when Perry decided to run as a candidate for the state's 10th Congressional District.

The bachelor's degree that was not a degree, the delayed action after witnessing a strip-search by another officer, the alleged tampering with stoplights, and that cover-up after driving over a radar gun might be viewed by some as a typical developing young Jeffrey Perry making some mistakes along the way. If it were not for his politics and party affiliation, I would take that view as well.

However, I'll be voting on the Democratic side for state Sen. Robert A. O'Leary, because his politics is in line with his character. He will, with no doubt, be a great congressman.
