Montana Senator Jon Tester Lugs Around a Suitcase of Meat

 U.S. Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) listens during a hearing on Capitol Hill October 13, 2011 in Washington, DC. The Senate held a hearing to discuss the possibility of further economic sanctions on Iran in light of the recently revealed plot to assassinate a Saudi diplomat in Washington, DC.
