From Plugged In -
The scene was Kyl's central Phoenix office. That's where a dozen of so media members gathered for the promised handoff of a letter - signed by 26 GOP legislators and 302 elected officials, party dignitaries and regular citizens - from Sen. Karen Johnson, R-Mesa, to Kyl's staff (Kyl was not on site).
The letter was in opposition to Kyl's immigration bill, an issue that has generated emotional debate on all sides.
Just one problem: An armed security guard posted at Kyl's door barred reporters from entereing the office. So The Insider and others were left to mouth-read through a set of glass doors.
Most of the comments on the Rep's website ignore the 'armed guard denying media access to a public office' aspect of the piece to focus on criticizing Kyl for not being tough enough on immigrants.
Nary a word, either from the commenters or from Kyl's office, about the Senator's continuing disregard and contempt for one of the founding principles of our country - open and accessible government.
I said it last September, and I say it now - Jon Kyl is the most dangerous man in the Senate because of his work toward an imperial, secretive, government.
