CQ‘s Josh Rogin is on a mission. And one man stands in his way: Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY).
Rogin broke his arm after getting hit by a taxi cab walking across the street near his Adams Morgan apartment. He says police gave him a ticket for “reckless walking” and let the cabbie go free. Crazy!
To bring awareness to the issues of taxi cab violence in DC, Rogin has been on a mission to get all the Senators to sign his cast. Most have been very supportive, signing his cast and genuinely expressing outrage (and sometimes amusement) about his predicament. With one notable exception.
Rogin tells us Sen. Bunning flat-out refused to sign his cast with no explanation. He’s up to about 30 signatures and hopes to reach a goal of building a “60-vote bipartisan filibuster-proof super majority” by the end of the month.
So come on Sen. Bunning, help Rogin pull a Stephen Colbert.
