Do you know what your Member of Congress is up to?

July 31, 2008

Mine wants to go hunting for wildebeests in Eastern Chad, and feed the game to refugees from neighboring Darfur. No joke. According to the Washington Post, Rep. Duncan Hunter’s (R-CA) “staff contacted the embassy in N’Djamena, Chad last week to see whether Hunter could distribute food at a camp. Hunter also wanted to put together an outing to hunt wildebeest and distribute the meat to refugees. The embassy was decidedly lukewarm.”

According to the Post, after the State Department said Rep. Hunter would not be able to hunt Wildebeests in Chad, “Hunter’s office called State on Thursday and said he had decided not to go and that he was looking instead at commercial hunting expeditions in Kenya, Tanzania and Southern Africa.”

I just don’t know how to respond to this…
