Civil Service Escapades

To the Editor:

Re "Intern's Father criticizes Starr Over Inquiry" (news article, Feb. 20): If a middle-aged male executive in the Civil Service, say, a GS-15, were accused of using his office for sexual liaisons with willing junior female staff members, on Government time, the charges would be investigated and if confirmed, he would be fired. If he advanced the careers of those women, he could face criminal charges.

Americans would agree that the charges needed to be investigated and, if necessary, punished. Why does the public hold the President to a lesser standard?
