Byrd Defends Dayton's Office Closure (Rate this story!)

Byrd Defends Dayton's Office Closure

1 hour, 10 minutes ago


WASHINGTON - The Senate's most senior member on Thursday defended Sen. Mark Dayton's decision to close his Washington office over concerns about a terrorist attack.



"Senator Dayton took this precautionary step based on his conscience and his responsibility to his staff," said Sen. Robert Byrd, an eight-term Democratic senator from West Virginia. "I commend him."

Byrd, 86, said in a statement that law enforcement and intelligence experts have warned senators about increased threats to the Capitol in recent weeks.

"They have urged senators to be prepared to have their staffs work from alternate locations," Byrd said. "Senators ought not take these warnings lightly. And those senators who put in place prudent security measures should not be mocked."

I really respect Mark Dayton. He's really decent, and determined. He'd better watch his back around the Senate Republicans.

6. How do you rate it?
Anyway, it's nice to hear two of the very few advocates of truth in Washington turn up in one story. :)

Yet, ironically, this may be an occasion where Senator Mark Dayton is not telling quite the whole truth. I suspect some other fears besides generic "terrorism" may have played into his decision. The Bush Regime will not go gently into that good night...this could be a very dangerous time to be in Washington.
