Shame On DeMint!

Right wing nutcase, Sen. DeMint, has been holding up the confirmation of the director of the TSA (Transportation Safety Administration). If something, God forbid, would have happened to that Christmas Day flight, would DeMint be responsible?


...After President Obama named Erroll Southers, an ex-FBI agent and top law enforcement officer at the Los Angeles World Airports, in September as his pick to lead the TSA, Sen. Jim DeMint (R) of South Carolina moved to block his appointment over concerns that Mr. Southers would allow airport screeners to unionize.

"The attempted terror attack in Detroit is a perfect example of why the Obama administration should not unionize the TSA and allow our airline security decisions to be dictated by union bosses," Senator DeMint said in a statement Monday...

DeMint's concerns sound absolutely crazy. His hold on this nomination is endangering the flying public. If you'd like to contact DeMint and tell him to withdraw his hold on the TSA nomination, check here for his contact link. DeMint and the Republicans like to play games with our health and safety.
