Gotcha! Senator Secret is Senator Kyl

Senator Kyl finally confirmed that he is the senator with the secret hold on the OPEN Government Act.  We first blogged about the ironic secret hold on this transparency bill last week.  Since then, our activists and others like the Chamber of Commerce have been sending letters and flooding the Senate with calls to smoke out the senator in hiding.

Kyl (R AZ) finally buckled under the pressure yesterday, admitting he placed the secret hold because of Department of Justice concerns.  We have plenty of DOJ concerns ourselves.  It’s clear DOJ under Attorney General Gonzales is opposed to any transparency and accountability. 

Shame on DOJ, shame on Senator Kyl.
