Friendly democracy

Re the April 1 article, Sen. Bob Menendez, eye doctor indicted in graft case: Let's face it, our political system has devolved into something that cannot just be called representative democracy anymore.

It is a new form of democracy heralded by politicians like Sen. Menendez and many others who boldly choose to represent their friends (and wealthy constituents) in Washington in ever more innovative ways.

Hail to Bob, father of our friendly democracy.
