Vitter: NFL Commissioner Meeting with Sen. Durbin is PR Stunt

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) today made the following statement in advance of a scheduled meeting between NFL Commission Roger Goodell and U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who has called for Senate hearings on "bounty-gate."

"First and foremost I stand with Who Dat nation -- we all want to move on from all this, sign Drew Brees, and begin our Super Bowl run next year. And like almost every fan I know, I certainly don't believe the federal government should involve itself in sports to chase headlines, especially when we have a flat-lined economy and a scary 16 trillion debt crisis to tackle. Senator Durbin and Roger Goodell both have more pressing matters than this public relations stunt," said Vitter.
