57. I've always felt their interruption of oversight hearings was counterproductive
Edited on Tue Feb-02-10 07:52 PM by Hippo_Tron
One hearing I went to that they disrupted was in 2008 where AG Mukasey was being questioned by the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Conyers. The members on the committee (or at least the Democrats) were trying to hold Mukasey accountable for the politicization of the justice department. The Codepink lady who sat next to me chanting "lets get some Justice in the Justice Department" every so often wasn't helping anything as far as I'm concerned.

Presumably if Geithner is answering questions before the Senate Finance Committee, its presumably because they are trying to hold Geithner and the administration accountable. Disrupting an oversight hearing is no way to create more accountability.
