U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg’s attempt at humor – he told an ABC News reporter doing a story on lobbyists, corporations and labor unions spending $50 million at the Democratic National Convention that it’s his duty to check out their food and booze – has drawn the wrath of Republican State Chairman Tom Wilson. “Now it all makes sense. Lautenberg hasn’t gotten anything done as our US Senator because for the last 25 years, he’s believed his ‘duty’ was to be wined and dined by the special interests instead of creating jobs, lowering taxes, or tackling our dependence on foreign oil,” said Wilson. “These kinds of statements are precisely why Senator Lautenberg is being sheltered away from the public view by his handlers.” Click here to watch.
