Joe Lieberman is the Senator in Charge of the Homeland Security Subcommittee of the Senate. BEFORE the Senate Hearing regarding the “culture of corruption” within the Secret Service I personally contacted him regarding the allegations that Todd Palin had introduced David Chaney to Shailey Tripp for the purposes of providing sexual services to David Chaney, the Secret Service Agent in charge of protecting Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign. Today it is clear that Joe Leiberman is unconcerned about Homeland Security unless someone from Connecticut is concerned. This is the e-mail I received today from his office:
“Dear Mrs. Litman:
Thank you for taking the time to contact me. I appreciate the opportunity to know your opinions on the pressing issues facing our nation. Regrettably, due to the huge volume of mail that I receive, I am only able to research and address comments sent to me from Connecticut residents. If you are not from Connecticut, you may want to consider sending a message to the Senators from your state of residence. You can do so by visiting http://www.senate.gov for a link to the websites of each member of the United State Senate. If you are currently residing out of state, but are still a Connecticut resident or have a connection to Connecticut, please be certain to use your Connecticut address or indicate your Connecticut connection in the first paragraph of your email.
I value having the benefit of your thoughtful concerns, since I do receive detailed weekly reports from my staff providing a sampling of comments from across the country on timely issues before Congress.
Thank you again for sharing your views and concerns with me. I hope you will continue to visit my website at http://lieberman.senate.gov for updated news about my work on behalf of Connecticut and the nation. Please contact me if you have any additional questions or comments about our work in Congress.
Joseph I. Lieberman
UNITED STATES SENATOR”
I guess this will be added to my list of reasons cited to the office of Homeland Security as to why there is “an overriding public interest” in revealing the extent of the corruption in the Secret Service, and any statements made by David Chaney about his involvement with Todd Palin and Shailey Tripp. When the Senator in Charge of the Senate subcommittee doesn’t want to hear about security concerns of any American unless they are voters from his state, the “culture of corruption” seems to permeate way beyond the boundaries of the Secret Service.
