Inquiring minds see Senator Barbara Boxer yet again, backpedal away from a controversy she and her staff created. This is a follow-up to the earlier post “Boxer, Code Pink Linked to Terrorists”
Sen. Barbara Boxer’s Capitol Hill staff is stonewalling a request by military mother Beverly Perlson for a copy of a reported diplomatic letter provided by the California Democrat to the leftwing group Code Pink/Global Exchange in support of the delivery of $600,000 in cash and aid to the “other side” in Fallujah, Iraq in late 2004.
Perlson, whose son has served four tours in the war on terror, is founder of the pro-troops group The Band of Mothers.
After initially telling Perlson the letter could not be found, Boxer’s staff has given Perlson the run around. Since she first made her request by telephone last week, Perlson says she has been passed from one staffer who, after failing to return several phone calls, referred her to another staffer who has not returned repeated phone messages. The receptionist refuses to give an e-mail address to Perlson so she can send her request in writing.
The stonewalling by Boxer’s office is in stark contrast to California Rep. Henry Waxman’s office which promptly provided Perlson a copy of a similar letter by Waxman.
Calling Boxer and her staff ‘disgusting human beings’ is to give them credit for being human.
