WATCH Charlotte Evening News: Veterans Ask Senator Burr Why He Missed Armed Services Hearings
Press conference follows Raleigh N&O, Huffington Post reports that Senator Burr skipped critical committee hearings but made time for high-dollar fundraisers
CHARLOTTE – Yesterday, North Carolina veterans called for Senator Richard Burr to release his schedule to explain why he missed critical Armed Services Committee hearings – piling onto a very bad news day for Senator Burr, who was reported to have banned the News and Observer from receiving notice of his events and was caught on tape making dangerous jokes about gun owners shooting Hillary Clinton. Senator Burr still hasn’t said why he missed nearly 70 percent of his Senate Armed Services Committee hearings, including on military suicides and the Joint Strike Fighter.
