The Republicans stay on TSA nominee Erroll Souther’s case……

This from AviationWeek Magazine…..

Senate Republicans are heightening their attacks on TSA administrator nominee Erroll Southers, and are penning a letter to the White House expressing their opposition to his confirmation and demanding new answers about his record.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) is one of the authors of the letter, which appears to mark a significant change in his position on Southers. Previously, DeMint has held up Southers’ Senate confirmation because he wanted Southers to say whether he supports collective bargaining for TSA screeners. DeMint said he had no issue with Southers’ competency or qualifications.

But the letter to the White House focuses on a different issue – inaccurate information Southers supplied to Senate oversight committees relating to an ethical violation during his FBI career more than 20 years ago. Southers initially told lawmakers he had asked other officers to access files on his ex-wife’s boyfriend, but then later admitted he had downloaded the files himself.

This is probably  a batshit reason…Okay…..

This is political hardball  from the Republicans, who have Southers caught by the b*#ls…for somethting that happened 20 years ago……

It was resolved twenty years ago…GIVE IT UP!

Congress balks at an addition 700 miles of border fence between Mexico and the United States……

By voting down an amendment by Senator Jim DeMint (R.SC), whose state doesn’t even sit on the border….to construct an additional 700 miles of high fencing in place of 300 miles of low rise fencing, and barriers…Congress has come to it senses, and backed away from the fierce right wing rhetoric,  and threats of action, that flowed last year about illegal immigration……seven border state congressmen asked, and received their wish, to have the amendment (and additional fencing) dropped from consideration by Congress.

In addition to other issues……the governments move to take land from private citizen’s (over 200) to construct  fencing and barrier’s has been a huge headache for the border states………Congress has asked the Homeland Security Department to consider other means of patrolling and securing the border……
