Why nothing ever gets done in Washington:
It had to happen — a GOP Congressman is calling for hearings into The New York Times‘s decision to publish MoveOn’s anti-Petraeus ad at a cheaper-than-usual rate.
GOP Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia has sent a letter to Oversight Committee chair Henry Waxman demanding a probe into the “scandal.”
“It is time for The New York Times to answer publicly, on the record, and under oath for its conduct,” Davis writes.
Earlier today, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) said in a statement that if Columbia University President Lee Bollinger â€œfollows through with this hosting of the leader of Iran, I will move in Congress to cut off every single type of Federal Funding to Columbia University.â€
Well, I guess you need priorities.
