    Thank you, Stacia Huyler, for not allowing your photo or your testimony to be shown in a video with your image! Now, if we could only get Terry Gorman to do the same, I would find watching the videos to be WAY less annoying.

    For those interested in the PUBLIC testimony of Stacia Huyler, it is at precisely 108.00 minutes into the official record of the House Judiciary Committee hearing by Capitol TV video here:

    Stacia Huyler can ask nicely for a journalist to refrain from recording her, but at a public hearing the news media (or actually, any person present) has a constitutional right to record the entire proceeding. Steve decided to be gracious and accommodating to Ms. Huyler, but Ms. Huyler is not entitled to have her testimony be kept secret. Watch it, if only for a few minutes, just so you can hear Ms. Huyler speak and see how ugly her words really are.

    I just watched Stacia Huyler. I noticed she literally wrapped herself in the flag – did you see her scarf? Apparently all criminal groups are Dominican, African American and other ‘others’. She sees a direct connection between drivers licenses and drug dealing which is a serious leap to consider. UGH!
