Football?

Posted by pennywit on May 15, 2008

According to the New York Times, Sen. Arlen Specter is once again criticizing the New England Patriots. Could somebody please explain to me why a senator is involving himself in what’s essentially a bush-league sports scandal?

I can almost understand Congress holding hearings about steroid use in baseball, as drug use is a major issue across multiple sports and there have been allegations of widespread drug use in baseball.

But a senator taking on a single team? Surely Specter has something better to do with his time.
