Filibuster Friends: Sens. Pat Toomey and Rand Paul
Lehigh Valley Senator Pat Toomey helped fellow Republican Rand Paul during the Kentucky senator's recent 13-hour filibuster protesting U.S. drone policy.
U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, who lives in Zionsville, Lehigh County, stepped in to help fellow Republican Rand Paul as the Kentucky senator filibustered for 13 hours (without a bathroom break) last week to delay the nomination of proposed CIA director John Brennan.
A YouTube video shows Toomey asking about Paul's request of the Obama administration for clarification on its drone police—"Can (they) kill an American in America with a drone strike?"
Paul speculated on what circumstances might prompt the White House to use drones on its own citizens.
