With the White House all atwitter over Twitter yesterday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa took advantage of it. According to The Hill, Issa used Twitter to deliver a letter to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
The tweet was a response to a question about the letter asked in the White House press briefing on Tuesday.
Carney told reporters at Tuesday’s briefing that he had not seen the letter. “I’m not aware of it,” he said.
The letter addressed to Attorney General Eric Holder is signed by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the chairman of the committee, and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). It details their concerns following the testimony of Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) acting director Kenneth Melson regarding the ATF operation “Fast and Furious.”
A picture of the tweet in question is below.
It is nice for once to see a Congressman using Twitter for something other than Tweeting pictures of his privates!
