Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) wants the federal government to open an investigation of the NFL’s Spygate scandal.
For those not in the know, the New England Patriots are accused of taping other teams’ signals from the bench. That is against league rules.
We are fighting two wars. Economic growth is slowing down. Entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare are headed for financial meltdowns.
Sen. Specter’s solution? Involve the federal government in a sports league’s internal affairs.
Priorities please, Senator.
On the other hand, any time the Senate spends bungling this issue is time they can’t spend bungling more important matters. Maybe there’s a silver lining to this political grandstanding, after all.
