Brian Hastings is Just Like Hillary ... So He Says

Big name poker pro in recent days has compared his multi-accounting scandal from last year to that of losing Democratic US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s email private server controversy. 

The former Secretary of State was under investigation for using a personal server while in her post.  The FBI ultimately cleared her of any wrong doing but did refer to her actions as “reckless”.

On his blog Hastings writes:

I think my MA scandal and Hillary’s email scandal are similar – IMO both of us had no malicious intention when we did it (for me – I longed for the days of online poker but researched USA sites and decided I trusted none of them, plus when I tried moving to Canada I became very depressed for a variety of reasons; for her – she realized the government email server was clunky and knew she had a more effective option), but we failed to consider the drawbacks carefully enough (for me – I honestly didn’t realize that players with little-to-no playing history against me would feel so wronged.

In their shoes I wouldn’t care, and when I did play online I assumed others were doing this. But that doesn’t make it right; for her – she didn’t realize how easily her private server could be compromised and jeopardize national security). Although I think I’m overall a much more moral person than her, I think we are both sorry for these mistakes and genuinely wish we hadn’t done them.
