Kit Bond (R - what else?) from Missouri is his name. And because he wanted a $175 million Federal Building project approved, he selfishly was the only senator to hold up President Obama's choice to head the General Services Administration for 9 months. The nominee passed the vote today, 96-0.
Early last year, Martha Johnson was unanimously approved by the Senate Homeland Security Committee. But this one typical selfish Regressive Republican held up the works.
The ability of a single senator being able to put an indefinite hold on a Presidential appointment to extort goodies for his district is outrageous and one of the main reasons we have a dysfunctional Senate.
