The 'Tucson Weekly' Goes to Washington

Posted By on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 9:32 AM

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords held up the Tucson Weekly issue containing the story about murdered Douglas rancher Robert Krentz at a Washington D.C. press conference held yesterday to announce the deployment of 1,200 National Guard troops to the border .

It's not the first time the Weekly has been used in Giffords' fight to get Washington to increase security along the border. She gave another copy of that issue of the Weekly to U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano earlier this month and asked her to show it to President Obama to illustrate the state of affairs in the border region.
