[Democrat] Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Sunday said there could be congressional hearings following the domestic violence incident between Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice and his wife.
In an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” the Democratic senator from New York said the “way the NFL handled this was awful, it was outrageous.”
“If the NFL doesn’t police themselves, then we will be looking more into it,” she said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we had hearings.”
Gillibrand was one of 16 women senators to send a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. urging a “zero-tolerance policy” for domestic violence.
Funny how the NFL… the people who actually punished Ray Rice, are “outrageous.” But the New Jersey judge and prosecutor who let him off scot-free are not criticized at all; because they are loyal party apparatchiks.
The fundamental transformation of the United State Obama promised apparently includes the Soviet-style inject of politics into every aspect of like including sports and entertainment.
On the latter note, the “entertainment networks” are trying to help Hillary out with blatant propaganda in the form of new shows featuring a “take charge” female secretary of state (“Madame Secretary” on CBS) and a smart, effective woman president (“State of Affairs” on NBC). If you recall, the networks wanted to do Hillary hagiographies a year or so ago, but Republicans threatened to boycott so they backed down. So, this is the networks way of providing Hillary with the equivalent of millions of dollars in campaign advertising through other means.
