Senator Richard Shelby

Senator Richard Shelby has a diabolical plan to shut down the government until he gets what he wants. He’s put an unprecedented “blanket hold” on all of Obama’s nominations until he gets cash (like, billions of dollars) for some projects he has his eye on back home in Alabama. This is some wacky shit that even Dr. Evil couldn’t come up with.
