Coburn calls for investigation of secret rewrite of transportation bill

Here's something I never thought I'd say: Go, Tom Coburn!

Apparently, when really, really po'd, our junior senator can actually use his anti-earmark Mission From God™ for good, rather than the usual IOKIYAR bullshit.

Because secret, improper, and unauthorized changes to congressionally passed legislation call into question the integrity of our entire Constitutional and legislative process, I believe a full and open investigation into this matter is necessary to restore the integrity of both the U.S. Congress and the Constitution.

His target: sleazier-than-your-average-Republican Congressman Don Young of Alaska, the man who also brought us the “Bridge to Nowhere.”
