Graham's Double Standard on Presidential Library Donors
Topic: NewsBusters

In a Dec. 19 NewsBusters post, Tim Graham wrote that CNN's Wolf Blitzer "suggested it was unfair for the Obama transition team or Congress to press Bill Clinton to release the names of donors to his foundation and presidential library" while the libraries of ex-presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush haven't, adding that CNN correspondent Dana Bash "suggested their relatives haven’t been nominated for high office."

That, of course, is wrong. George H.W. Bush's son has not only been nominated for but has held a very high office for the past eight years.

Did Graham demand that the donors to the elder Bush's library be released in 2000? We're pretty sure he didn't.
