And now this woman is being threatened. I hope she goes after Bachmann on this one. Impeach Bachmann!

So someone is working directly with the Sec'y of State without a background check? a security clearance?

That's pretty shocking, if true. You know what? I'll bet its not true.

I just watched The Daily Show from last week. I learned that Bachmann got a campaign donation from HSBC, the bank that has been accused of money laundering for terrorists and drug cartels.
I hope the FBI is looking into this.

I don't know if you are ignorant or just being deliberately obtuse here.

One, McCarthy, investigated security risks by govt employees. Regardless of what one might think of him, his methods, targets and so on, I suspect that most people would agree that this is a legitimate Senatorial responsibility. (Just to be clear, I think so)

The other The House Committee on UnAmerican Activities, investigated, primarily, private citizens exercising their rights to speech, freedom of assembly and so on. I suspect that most people, including myself, would find this reprehensible. Perhaps even treasonous on the part of Congress.

But go on thinking what you want. You win.

Seems to me that any congressional investigation should include a doctor's report on the condition of Huma's vagina. There are several doctors in Congress, let one of them take a peek.

Her mother's organization Institute for Minority Muslim Affairs (IMMA) through its Journal for Minority Muslim Affairs (JMMA) supports ritual female genital mutilation saying that it is a requirement of the Koran. Huma was editor of the journal for a number of years so it would be fair to ask if she agrees with the journal position on FGM.

Her mother is Pakistani, where FGM is widely practiced. Huma was raised in Saudi Arabia where it is widely practiced. What about her, is she intact?

Can we have someone take a look?

Probably not relevant to whether or not she is a security risk. It would make a Hell of a distraction from Obama's serial screw-ups on the campaign trail, though.

Where does Huma's money come from?

She and her layabout hubby are, as the song says, "Moving on up to that deluxe apartment in the sky"

Via Drudge from yesterday's NY Post:

Anthony Weiner and wife move into $3.3M Manhattan apt.
Sweet Weiner deal

By JEANE MACINTOSH, JENNIFER GOULD KEIL and JOSH MARGOLIN

Last Updated: 2:22 PM, August 13, 2012

Anthony Weiner’s wife not only took him back, she took him back in style — moving with the shamed pol into a luxurious, $3.3 million Manhattan pad owned by a deep-pocketed Democratic donor, The Post has learned.

After quitting his Queens House seat amid a notorious sexting scandal, Weiner and beautiful, brainy spouse Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, landed in the sprawling, 12th-floor Park Avenue trophy residence owned by Rosen Partners LLC, which is headed by close Clinton pal Jack Rosen, records show.
<snip>
The market-rate rent on Weiner and Abedin’s 2,120-square-foot, four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom apartment — where the disgraced pol has said he spends his days doing laundry and changing baby son Jordan’s diapers — is at least $12,000 to $14,000 a month, real-estate sources said.
<Snip>
But Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines insisted that Weiner and Abedin pay “market rate’’ for the pad.

What does it matter if it was not obtained illegally?

Where does Mitt's money come from? How about Obama? How about you or me?

Are you jealous that they have more money than you?

Hello Troll!

Are you seriously stating that anyone why wants to work for our country needs to have their vagina checked? :oops:

The above quote pretty much shows you really aren't open to debate or discussion. Vaginal probes for all!

But that is the problem, isn't it?

We do not know that it was not obtained illegally or against US interests. If she is getting money from the Saudi or Pakistani govt I suspect that this would be illegal unless she registers as a foreign agent. It would certainly be a conflict of interest for her to be a foreign agent AND near the top of the State Dept.

Were you ever a birther too?

Actually I was.

Not about Obama, though. I have never questioned his Hawaiian birth.

I never thought that McCain was a "Natural Born Citizen", as he was not born in the United States.

JfH, looks like you've got company.
