“Mr. National Security” Exposed
Ron Johnson Draws Ire For Missing 60% of DHS Committee Hearings In First Four Years
MADISON – Wisconsinites were jarred by yesterday’s breaking news from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel detailing Ron Johnson‘s startling hypocrisy on national security. The MJS reports that Senator Ron Johnson missed a whopping 60% of the hearings held by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the subcommittees to which he was assigned during his first four years in office.
In numerous cases, Johnson made time for fundraisers or cable news appearances on the very same days he skipped hearings on America’s national security.
The revelations come as Johnson attempts to make his tenure on the homeland security committee a central tenet of his reelection bid.
Here’s a round-up of the coverage on Johnson’s dismal attendance record:
