Here is a story from four days ago:
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, created outrage and controversy during debate in the Senate Armed Services Committee on the nomination of Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense over his mentioning that Hagel has been endorsed by Iran.
Cruz also suggested that Hagel had failed to disclose some financial documents and speculated that it means that he may have taken money from extremist groups, lobbyists and defense contractors for paid speeches.
The story says that Cruz has been denounced as engaging in “McCarthyism” for such suggestions.
Not sure why I chose to link this days-old story today, or why I chose to quote those two paragraphs. Just found them interesting, I guess. You know?
