Open Letter to Hillary

Dear Mrs Clinton,

We, the poor coloured people of a country that has never recovered from the Attention, Concern and Conviction-that-your-country-knows-what's-best-for-us, feel concerned enough about the recent Reuters statement which has started to use more conciliatory language reporting the recent case of the IMF chief sexually assaulting the coloured, migrant and possibly Muslim maid, to write to you.  Sorry about the complicated sentence!
We know that you would feel the utter disgust that we do about men in power who don't consider Oral Sex sex, and would agreed that the immediate response would be to choke him with his own testicles and not set a bad example for the rest of Men with Oversized Egos. As we speak, the man's lawyers have got him released on bail to live in a Luxury Flat in Manhattan with his wife and daughter who don't see anything wrong with his behaviour.
We have lots of people such as these in our country who make daily living such a misery for the rest of us. Ironically the Statue of Liberty  represents both parties in this case- the gift of France to the United States as an expression of the friendly feeling existing between the two republics is associated with this popular quote:  "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.  Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me;" --- both the IMF (ex) chief and the maid!

The rest of the World is watching how this particular story unfolds - now-- NOW is the time to show whether the most famous part of your Founding Fathers Declaration still has relevance in today's USA - "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

In our country the rich pay the poor and the enforcers of the system to avoid the weak arm of the Law but I'm hoping that your Prosecutors will proceed with the case even if the poor woman is 'paid off'.
Please see that your Country does 'the right thing' because as you said in your book ' The undeniable fact is that our children's future is shaped both by the values of their parents and the policies of our nation'.

Post script - case was dropped by the American prosecuters as the woman would have been shredded by the defenders as an unreliable witness. However others came forward to publicly renounce him and his wealthy wife finally left him when he got involved in some sort of prostitiution ring involving a hotel back in France! I believe the maid was offered a substantial sum of money to drop any further Court action- in a bizarre way, justice has been served. 21-Jan-2013
