House Representitive Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of the Judiciary Committee, described Senlessbrenner's Temper Tantrum at the USA Patriot Act hearing:
“What happened today was not only an attempt to silence Democratic Members of Judiciary, it was a silencing of Democracy in America,” said Rep. Wasserman Schultz. “As a new member of the Judiciary Committee, I was appalled by the treatment we received today and the disrespect that Minority Chairman Conyers was shown. Minority Chairman Conyers has dedicated over forty years of his life to this country as a member of the House of Representatives --he and the Americans who are deeply concerned about the Patriot Act deserve better.”
Glad we have SOME people in the House with sense (um, err, she's cute too!).
