The one bright spot in our insane world today is right here in Floriduh, where Congressman and candidate for the US Senate Alan Grayson this morning filed an ethics complaint against Kevin McCarthy and Trey Gowdy.
In a three-page letter to the Office of Congressional Ethics, Grayson referenced McCarthy’s comment last week about the Benghazi committee’s success in hurting Hillary Clinton politically and said that the comment signals a misuse of funds. Grayson also said that Gowdy has dragged out the investigation in an attempt to hurt Clinton, noting that the committee hasn’t held a hearing since January.
“Congressman Gowdy evidently has dragged out the work of the Committee so that it would coincide with the Democratic Presidential Primary race. In the meantime, the Committee under Gowdy’s leadership has subpoenaed State Department employees and others close to former Secretary Clinton, in an apparent effort to generate anti-Clinton information and disinformation,” he wrote.
But today’s Wednesday, and that means I get together with my fellow FloriDUH-ian Deborah Newell Tornello for another waltz through our “Oy, FloriDUH” files. You can play along at home… but here are some of our stories from today:
In the second hour, my go-to guy on all things TPP, Dave Johnson, returned with more info than we could conceivably get through in 30 minutes… So, I’ll direct you to his page at the Campaign for America’s Future and tell you to read and read more. We have our work cut out for us in trying to defeat this thing. Stay tuned.
Back tomorrow with Harvey J. Kaye and Howie Klein, radio or not!
