House panel wants Homeland documents
The request for e-mails and other documents is in a letter obtained Sunday by the Associated Press.
The request comes from the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican. It is one of the first such moves by House Republicans, who have vowed to launch numerous probes of President Obama's administration.
The Freedom of Information Act is supposed to ensure the quick public release of government documents without political consideration.
Oversight panel spokesman Frederick Hill says that documents the panel already has received seem inconsistent with comments by Homeland Security officials.
Sargent Shriver sent hospitalized in Maryland
Mr. Shriver announced in 2003 that he had Alzheimer’s disease. He served as the first Peace Corps director in the administration of his brother-in-law, President John F. Kennedy. He also was Democrat George McGovern’s running mate in 1972.
Mr. Shriver’s wife and Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver died in 2009 at age 88. He is the father-in-law of former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is married to former NBC reporter Maria Shriver.
