Yesterday, I pointed you to the time-wasting politicians in the Connecticut legislature who were caught playing solitaire and watching baseball during debate on the state’s budget.
A Connecticut House Democrat spokesman sent the following statement to Fox News Channel producer Lee Kushnir after she saw my blog post and asked about State Democrats Barbara Lambert and Jack Hennessy’s extra-curricular activities captured in the Hartford Courant newspaper.
Our members have discussed and debated the state budget for seven months, culminating in yesterday’s marathon, 13 hour budget session. With little new ground being broken, and the results of the upcoming vote a reasonable certainty, a momentary diversion is understandable. Both representatives insist there was no intent to disrespect the minority leader during his presentation.

I bet Connecticut voters are more than a wee bit curious about how “momentary” those “momentary diversions” really have been.blog comments powered by Disqus
