Malfeasance in office

Dear Editor:The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines malfeasance as: misconduct or wrongdoing; especially, wrongdoing that is illegal or contrary to official obligations. Malfeasance is an impeachable offense for any elected official. Impediment is defined as: a hindrance; an obstruction. Say, for instance, a way was known for our country to be free of dependence on foreign oil (a major national security issue), and someone was using their political influence to keep our country dependent upon it, even to the point of involving us in wars over it, and impeding any attempts toward using alternative sources. Would you call that malfeasance? I sure would.Bob KeenanCarbondale
