Make Washington more accountable?
At her own website, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand features a page entitled "Reform Agenda to MAKE WASHINGTON MORE ACCOUNTABLE."
We agree that Washington needs to be made more accountable.
And we think a great place to start is with Senator Gillibrand herself.
For example, she was wrongly applauded for her 'hard hitting' remarks about assault and rape in Thursday's Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.
She was applauded for 19 words. For less than 140 characters. She could have Tweeted her remarks about rape and assault and had characters left over.
There was nothing to applaud.
