TLP: Congress Gives AIG, New York Fed a Potty Pass
Congressman Edolphus Towns may have had enough of AIG and the New York Fed to last him a while. But that doesn't mean the New York Democrat isn't, um, pissy about things. He's just found a different target.
WSJ's Washington Wire unzips it for us:
Rep. Edolphus Towns, chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, once again is introducing a potty parity bill for federal buildings.
The bill aims to ease “the problem of insufficient restroom facilities for women in federal buildings” by requiring that new buildings built for federal use have the same number of toilets in women’s restrooms as both toilets and urinals in men’s restrooms.
Towns and fellow New York Democrat Rep. Yvette Clarke had introduced a similar bill requiring the 1-to-1 parity in 2007, but it never made it out of a House Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee. This time, Towns and Clarke were joined by the Oversight Committee’s top Republican, Darrell Issa of California, and Rep. Pete Visclosky (D., Ind.).
Hmmm. Darrell Issa is distracted with this, too? That AIG turd might keep floating for quite a while.
