Tucson Weekly Gets U.S. House Floor Shout-Out

Posted By on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 4:31 PM

Our April 29 story on the Robert Krentz murder got a lot of people talking in a lot of different places, one of which was the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives this week. District 8 Representative Gabrielle Giffords displayed a large version of that issue's cover and quoted several sections of the Leo W. Banks story during a speech about border security that came on the heels of the president authorizing National Guard troops to the U.S. Mexico border.

The video was posted today on Rep. Giffords' YouTube page. This marks the second D.C. shout-out Giffords made about the paper.

Giffords also spoke with Bob Orr with CBS News and will appear tonight on "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" to talk about border security. We'll keep you posted on if the Tucson Weekly gets a mention on MSNBC.
