Ed Schultz often attacks Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, for his interest and investigations into Benghazi, the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups and Fast and Furious scandals. On Monday's The Ed Show, Schultz took a question from a viewer cheekily asking when Issa would look into Republican Governor Chris Christie's "Bridgegate" issue in New Jersey.
The question said, "Where is Darrell Issa on Bridgegate?" to which Ed responded,
Nowhere to be found! In fact he mighta been the one out there directing traffic, who knows! To make a joke out of it. Look, Darrell Issa is agenda-driven to take down this president. Bridgegate doesn't fall in that category... and, does it warrant a federal investigation? Real close... real close. Issa, what's your phone number?
