Tough Talk from Bill Nelson

In the middle of the Gannon/Guckert hoo-ha, I wrote Senator Bill Nelson (D-Florida) an e-mail voicing my concern that the White House had been lax in their security regarding press credentials. Well, I got his response today:

Dear [Mustang Bobby]:

Thank you for contacting me about media accreditations for the White House.

As you may know, members of Congress have made inquiries into James Guckert, also known as Jeff Gannon, being granted press access to the White House. Please know that I’ll continue to monitor the situation.

If you have any other concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me in the future.

Boy, I sleep better knowing that Bill Nelson is going to continue to monitor the situation. I’m tired of getting my updates on it from Doonesbury.
