Contempt Of Congress. Anybody Not?

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) is upset - again - because the White House isn't doing his bidding. Again.

Like a broken record:
Senator Threatens to Charge White House With Contempt
By Eric Lichtblau, The New York Times

Washington, Aug. 20 — A leading Democrat threatened on Monday to pursue contempt charges against the White House next month over its response to a subpoena for internal documents on the National Security Agency’s domestic surveillance program.

“Time is up,” said Senator Patrick J. Leahy, Democrat of Vermont, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “We’ve waited long enough.”

“Follow the law, and don’t act like you’re above the law,” Mr. Leahy told reporters in remarks aimed at the White House. “Go ahead and answer the subpoena.”

Mr. Leahy said that when the Senate returns to session next month, he would bring up what he called the White House’s “dilatory unresponsiveness” with the Judiciary Committee in order to decide whether to bring contempt charges against the administration. (link)

Jane Fonda’s Radio Network Tanks

The "feminist” radio company whose founders include Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem failed to attract an audience and it signed off the air for good on Friday.

When the talk-radio network, called GreenStone, officially launched in September 2006, NewsMax reported that it was a "new left-wing radio network that plans to appeal to women listeners and counter the dominance of conservative talk radio.”

Greenstone offered interviews with such liberals as Ralph Nader, as well as segments on parenting and relationships.

But its programming was picked up by only eight affiliates in small to mid-sized markets, and its backers have now pulled the plug. (link)
