Motorcycle-Riding Republican Prepares to Let the Subpoenas Fly


If Republicans regain control of the House in midterm elections this fall, California Representative Darrell Issa is promising to “hire dozens of subpoena-wielding investigators” to make good on the accusations of corruption he’s thrown at the Obama administration.

Issa is seen as a “clownish figure” by Democrats and even a few Republicans, Politico reports, but “a clown with subpoena power is no laughing matter.”

Burton, who once called Bill Clinton a “scumbag,” seems happy to pass the torch: “I’ll take somebody like Darrell Issa to milquetoast any day.”
