Leahy Caught Doing the Right Thing

Thom Hartmann is always reminding people to call out our politicians (no matter which party) when they "get caught" doing the right thing. When Pat Leahy caused the White House to be subpoenaed over illegal wire taps and then was summarily ignored, I admit I was skeptical if there would be any follow-up by the Democrats. But today Patrick Leahy, Vermont Senator and Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he would hold the White House in contempt if they failed to respond to the subpoenas. He said he would prefer cooperation but that he felt the Whitehouse was currently in contempt and had been provided enough time to reply already.

Thank you Senator Lehey. I don't know how this is going to end but people of courage are going to be the ones who make a difference.
