Funny how both the verb and noun were used by Senate leadership Tuesday to summarize their arguments over S. 3628, the DISCLOSE Act.
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Senate Republican leader, closed his floor comments commenting: “We’re here to protect the Constitution, not our own hides.”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) closed his remarks by saying: “The only ones fearful of transparency are those with something to hide. That is what this legislation is all about.”
The AFL-CIO opposed the legislation.
The ACLU issued a statement declaring its opposition, “Bill Raises Serious First Amendment Concerns.”
What do they have to hide?
