GOP shuns hearing where homeland nominee denies wrongdoing

Washington (CNN) - At a hearing on Thursday that Republicans didn't attend, the nominee for the No. 2 job at the Department of Homeland Security strongly denied reported allegations he helped obtain a special visa for an international investor.

Alejandro Mayorkas told Democrats on a Senate panel considering his nomination by President Barack Obama that he was unaware of being under investigation by a government inspector general until media reports emerged this week.

    Do the rethugs/teat trolls need psychiatric help?
    What a bunch of losers. Anything coming out of the white house is bad or one thing to immediately go against.
    So sick of them!
