I see hypocrites

Today's Los Angeles Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

Re "Apple execs grilled over tax strategy," Business, May 22

I don't know whether it's funny or hypocritical for politicians to grill Apple executives on business ethics. After all, these are the people who, for years, have regularly taken bribes disguised as campaign contributions and generally enriched themselves at the public trough, all with impunity.

The politicians should be embarrassed — but to be embarrassed, one first has to have a conscience.
