You didn't answer the question and instead tried to deflect my question with a distraction as if I was some sort of dog that could be bought off with a new toy. People who didn't turn down the benefits of Murtha's "efforts" weren't the subject or focus of my question, nor is the implication that those people may justify the means for the ends because it benefits them.
I asked whether you
were promoting an "ends justify the means" position considering you framed your response to King in a way that made it seem as though you thought Murtha's corruption was okay because it had just ends as you saw them.
I was asking for your clarification on the matter. So I will ask again, clarifying my question: In your opinion, do the ends justify the means so long as the ends correspond to values and issues you find to be paramount in importance?
