Finally, the Senate Judiciary Committee to Investigate Videotape Destruction

Marty Lederman

Thank goodness they're finally getting their priorities in order. Now let's just hope they don't insist on closed hearings for this, our shameful national scandal . . . .

Comments:

Well, it was called "Spygate" so it's apparent the Clintons were behind it.
 

Specter is an embarrassment. What possible business is it of Congress in general and Judiciary in particular what the NFL does with its own records?
 

This has to be the *only* time I've agreed with Mr. DePalma.
Of course, there are far better reasons to consider Spectre an embarassment, such as his aggrandizement and threats to stand up to the Executive, followed by shameless capitulation, time and again, to said Imperial Pretzelnit.
 

Even here our crackerjack team won't get things underway till it's too late, until the Pats have cheated their way through the Superbowl. One thing you can say for this team: they never run out of timeouts.

And how long will it take Ted Kennedy to ask for retroactive immunity?

Hey, can we bet on this site?
 

Obviously they need to amend the Patriot Act

(I stole that, but couldn't resist)
 

The nfl operates under an antitrust exemption, so it is relevent. Leagues don't deserve that special exemption if they abuse it, in various ways (like, by favouring the more important teams).

The governance of the nfl is something Specter has long been interested in. See for instance -->

Thought you all may be interested in a new site devoted to transparency in government
and one of the best ways to find legislation. (www.statesurge.com)

They also provide my blog a widget (script) that shows the most active bills in any
of their states or at the federal level (free of charge). Contact
Larry@statesurge.com if you are interested in this widget.

You can sign up for a free trial on StateSurge.com and test out this legislative
management system. Its the best service I have seen for tracking legislation.

Apparently, soon much of the information will be open and free to use as a research
tool. Currently, www.StateSurge.com tracks Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Tennessee, and
Federal legislation, but soon all 50 states will be integrated.

Next theory, please?
