Huffington article: no time for rebuttal

Because the opinion-page article ``Where did Huffington's Fortune Come From?'' Nov. 7, was published on the eve of election day, there was no chance for a rebuttal from the Huffington campaign, the Huffco Corporation, or the government of Indonesia before the crucial election.

There is no indication in the article that the Huffco work in Indonesia had any positive side. The point seems to be that money was received by the Huffingtons without commensurate goods or services being offered.

If this article had run a month or so before the election, there would have been time for a reasoned response. William A. Hansen, Glendale, Wis.
