Grassley again responds to LTTE
Last week you may remember that our senior senator responded to an LTTE in the CR Gazette.

This week Grassley again responds to an LTTE, this time in the DMR.
Maybe if you want to actually get an answer from Grassley, contacting his office is the wrong way to go?
Anyway, this time Chuck takes issue with an Iowan who supported President Obama's recess appointment. Not sure why this upset Grassley, but it did.
"Trish Nelson's April 8 letter misses the facts about the issues involved when the president circumvented the constitutional advise-and-consent role of the Senate with a nomination to a top government position.

In the case of Alan Bersin, the problem wasn't his resume, which Nelson touts. In fact, on a bipartisan basis, there were unresolved questions about inconsistent information and documentation of various household employees.

The issue was relevant because the commissioner for U.S. Customs and Border Protection oversees the enforcement of immigration laws.

It was a matter of accountability that was left unresolved.

- Sen. Chuck Grassley, Washington, D.C."
Grassley seems a bit prickly these days. So if you have an issue with him, maybe you could get an answer if you address it through an LTTE.
Be sure to send those letters and let Chuck know how you think he is doing.
(BTW - this was the first I had heard of any reasons for holdin Obama nominees. You should let people know about this, Senator).

1. Jeebus. He's really losing it.
Seems like every little thing is setting him off for the last year.

He should just join the teabag express and be done with it.
