Leave politician out of it.
Would a regular person be a hypocrite even if they were unaware of such happenings?
If anybody focused and blew a trumpet about a cause and then actively invested money that countered that cause, that same cause you condemn others for countering, then yes... that's the very definition of hypocrisy.
Everybody is a hypocrite at some point but the difference is that most people aren't using those contradictions for personal gain.
I used to be pro-choice but now I am pro-life, so even if before I advocated for a position I now abhor does that brand me a hypocrite? I would thing being able to overlook one's past as being fair-minded. This is just political mudslinging. The compny wasn't even a company that was only about porn.edit on 17-8-2011 by 547000 because: (no reason given)
