Apparently a resident of Florida, not Alabama, is U.S. Senator THOMAS HAWLEY TUBERVILLE deserving of scrutiny from the Senate Ethics Committee? Se Senator TUBERVILLE, a former Auburn football coach, is the one Senator who is blocking some 300+ military officer promotions to punish DoD for paying travel expenses for military service women seeking abortions forbidden by state laws in places like Texas. Rather than seek to re-word the Hyde Amendment to apply to those payments, TUBERVILLE abuses Senate privilege to block nominations! Now we know TUBERVILLE apparently doesn't live in Alabama. Florida needs a third Republican Senator like a moose needs a hatrack.
In any event, is the senior Senator from Alabama a devious demagogue, a divisive dybbuk, delaying hundreds of military nominations, proving himself a demagogue without decent respect for the United States Senate and its traditions of comity and courtesy?
You tell me.
