by Lauretta Brown, CNS News:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not respond to repeated questions from CNSNews.com about whether American citizens who try to ask him a question in the Capitol hallway should be physically barred from doing so by Capitol Police–as happened recently when reporter Jason Mattera introduced himself, shook Reid’s hand, and asked him a question about how he became a millionaire on a government salary. In several e-mails and telephone calls, CNSNews.com asked Sen. Reid’s office the following question: “Does Sen. Reid think that Americans should in any way be barred or intimidated from asking questions of members of the Senate walking in public hallways in a Senate office building?”
Reid’s office never responded. Back on Sept. 16, a Capitol Hill police officer walking with Reid pushed Mattera into a wall, even though all Mattera did was ask Reid a question, which under the First Amendment of the Constitution any American has a right to do.
