Representative says we have no right to know what our government is doing

Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting congressional representative for the District of Columbia, angrily sputtered during a congressional hearing Friday that the White House should not be held up to scrutiny, saying that there was no right to know what it was doing behind closed doors.

The words of a woman in government who doesn't understand government. At least, not our form of government.

It's a good thing she doesn't actually get to vote, since she represents DC. But I suspect her attitude is not at all unusual.
