Family Research Council's Perkins: Feingold's call for censure is "borderline treasonous behavior"
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, called Sen. Russ Feingold's introduction of a resolution to censure President Bush "borderline treasonous behavior."
On the March 13 edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country, Tony Perkins , president of the Family Research Council , asserted in a discussion with host Joe Scarborough  that the resolution to censure  President Bush introduced by Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) on March 13 is "borderline treasonous behavior." Feingold proposed  the censure for what he said was Bush's violation of the law in authorizing warrantless domestic eavesdropping.
The Family Research Council is a conservative political organization that, according to its website , "shapes public debate and formulates public policy that values human life and upholds the institutions of marriage and the family."
From the March 13 edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country:
PERKINS: You know that Senator Feingold is out in left field when [House Democratic Leader] Nancy Pelosi [CA] is distancing herself from him. I mean, this is -- in a time of war, this is borderline treasonous behavior. I mean, this takes politics to a new low. I mean, this literally -- what he is doing -- puts our military and our nation at greater risk by sending the message that we're divided, that we're not intent on protecting our nation against terrorists. This is a bad move on his part. And you can tell.
