Check Demint's records

The NYTimes has an interesting piece on the tremendous lobbying by the Honduran coup leaders which might explain Sen. Jim DeMint's trip there last week.
In addition to the support of such cold war veterans — and partly because of it — the de facto government has mobilized the support of a determined group of Republican legislators, led by Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina. They are holding up two State Department appointments as a way of pressing the Obama administration to lift sanctions against the country.

“We have made a wrong call here,” Mr. DeMint said in an interview with Fox News after returning from a trip to Honduras last Friday. Referring to the de facto government, he said, “This is probably our best friend in the hemisphere, the most pro-American country, but we are trying to strangle them.”

Don't you want to know what DeMint's payoff was?


  • How long before they link Zelaya to Al Quaida?
