With the rumbling of so much scandal ripping through Washington this week—woeful stories aboutBenghazi, the DOJ subpoena of journalists’ phone records and the IRS unfairly targeting conservative groups—it’s hard to keep track of all the terrible.
Even lawmakers sometimes struggle
At Rep. Steny Hoyer’s weekly meeting with reporters on Tuesday, the Maryland Democrat was asked if he was concerned about the DOJ seizing phone records from Associated Press journalists working in the House press gallery in the Capitol building.
Hoyer’s answer was well-delivered: Articulate, clear, firm and precise.
One problem: He responded to the wrong scandal.
