Marsha Blackburn Rails Against Lacey Act She Voted For

Posted By on Mon, Oct 10, 2011 at 3:23 PM

Marsha Blackburn recently spoke at a Tea Party rally against the U.S. government's raid on Gibson Guitar manufacturing plants. The government, as you probably know, invoked the Lacey Act to investigate possible importation of endangered wood products by Gibson.

What you might not know is that In 2008 the Lacey Act was amended to include illegal wood products, an amendment that Blackburn voted for. When confronted by a reporter who asked whether Blackburn was being disingenuous in speaking against the government's actions, she responded ... oh, just watch it.

Also, her glasses are ugly. Also, cue Mickey.
