C-Span Mic Catches Senator Unaware: ‘It’s All Rigged’

It is always a good idea to know when your mic is on, especially if the event is televised. However, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) wasn’t caught saying anything he hasn’t already said to his Colorado citizens. It’s too bad that a faulty audio situation is what gets your voice heard on the Senate floor. From The Raw Story:

Is the US Senate “rigged”? It may be, at least according to one Democrat whose words of candor were picked up by a hot microphone on the Senate floor, the audio of which was broadcast live by C-Span 2 on Tuesday afternoon.

“Because — because … It’s all rigged,” Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) said, speaking to a female colleague as fellow Senators voted. “I mean, the whole conversation is rigged,” he went on. “The fact that we don’t get to a discussion before the break about what we’re going to do in the lame duck, is just rigged. This stuff’s rigged.”

    This is good. While many people already knew this, i’m sure there is a vast majority that still believe they can make a change with their vote.
