Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D., Calif.) fielded a call from a voter concerned with the lack of attention given to 9/11 conspiracy theorists on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal.
Flustered, Sanchez attempted to skirt the accusation:
CALLER: I have been watching your show, and it is sad to know that you have silenced the voices that talk about building seven on 9/11.
HOST: We have not silenced them. They have called into the show.
LORETTA SANCHEZ: I think it is a good thing for people to push and suggest there might be other answers. Honestly, the best information we get comes from constituents who tell us, have you seen this, that document. We have found out a lot of things that way.
HOST: When a congressperson is sitting here and we get those phone calls, we welcome them to respond. If it is off topic, we will move on.
Apparently 9/11 theories are not considered ‘off topic’ to Sanchez.
