    These are highly placed government and administration officials claiming fifth amendment protection against producing documents. They are saying "I cannot comply with the subpoenas because i may have committed a crime and these public documents may reveal my criminality." Of course this cannot be allowed. Of course we have to find out what happened and why. Closing the bridge lanes was wrong and highly damaging to the people these officials are supposed to represent. We cannot accept this irrationally incompetent and petty activity by our leaders as politics as usual. There must be an accounting; our leaders must be held to a higher standard of behavior. Our leaders must have and display better judgment. There must be consequences to Incompetent and stupid behavior by our leaders. Weinberg and Wisniewski were the ones with the courage to act when most shied away from the controversy. They need our continuing support. They showed resolve and determination while our other "leaders" displayed only fear and lack of will and courage.

    Wisniewski and Weinberg need to get a life and realize that their 15 minutes of fame as lapdogs for Hilary is now rather boorish.......!!!!
