Sue's World Tour... Cancelled
All packed up and ready to go on a fun filled trip to Quatar when the State Department throws a monkey wrench into her vacation plans.
Did the State Department withdraw support for her jaunt to the Gulf because, as Sue's spokesmodel claims, her criticism of the Adminstration's support for Quatar hit a little close to home (wait, I thought she wasn't in campaign mode?)?
Or, is the truth far more obvious, that the State Department dropped its sponsorship of Sue's junket because it was ... well... a politically motivated junket?
The Times Herald-Record might have the answer:
A State Department spokesman denied any link between the criticism and the canceled trip, which was first reported in Monday's New York Post. The agency withdrew its sponsorship after questions were raised by the House Ethics Committee, said the spokesman, Noel Clay. The Ethics Committee did not return a call for comment.Considering how far out of step she is with the voters of the 19th Congressional District, can you blame Sue for wanting to be anywhere but here at home?
Maybe we can get the State Dep't to let her go, but only give her a one-way ticket?
