Congressman Runs From Reporter To Avoid Tough NDAA Question
Watch as a reporter goes to Washington DC to chase down Congressman Dan Benishek (R-Mi 1st Dist.), his own representative, demanding to know why the Congressman continues to vote for the National Defense Authorization Act when it has been nullified in their home state after a unanimous vote by state legislators.
It is a crime in Michigan for any employee of the state to cooperate with the federal government in the arrest of a citizen under sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA; so why does Benishek - not to mention Michigan Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin, one of the bill's sponsors - continue to vote in favor of it each and every year?
After a 2 year wait for an answer to that question, TTiV Publisher Bobby Powell went to Washington DC demanding one as both a member of the 4th Estate and as a constituent.
This episode also includes a musical performance by Jason Eller, one of Michigan's most popular acts since Bob Seger and Ted Nugent ruled the airwaves.
