50. Correctamundo................
He was denied a Congressional Pass because "Talon News" wasn't a real news agency. And if one of the criteria for getting a permanent pass is having the Congressional Pass, then someone KNOWINGLY allowed "Bulldog" to get a permanent pass, sidestepping the security measures in place. Not to mention that "Talon News" isn't a legitimate news organization, and if the Secret Service vetting didn't turn up ANY dirt on this asshat BEFORE credentials were given, I'll eat my fricking hat!

This stinks right to the top, folks. Someone is going to have to be held accountable for this. The questions is; Who has the POWER to circumvent the entire process for the likes of "Bulldog"?
