re: Broun and the Military: Reactions

Actually, Andrew, he does have a base in his district. And it was a military wife from that base who first called Broun’s office and brought the issue to his attention, a senior aide to Broun (I talked with the congressman, too, yesterday, in his Rayburn office; more later) relayed to me yesterday. With two young children, she hates going to the PX with the possibility of seeing men in uniform buying the trash. Once he realized that there is already a (Clinton-signed!) law on the books banning the sale of Penthouse, etc., on military bases, he got to work.
