Specter Calls For Investigation Into Destroyed Tapes

"I am very concerned about the underlying facts on the taping, the reasons for the judgment on the limited penalties and, most of all, on the inexplicable destruction of the tapes," Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., wrote Thursday in a letter. Specter met with reporters at a press conference:

Reporter #1: Senator Specter, are the millions of missing emails from all those articles about Rove's missing emails, the same emails that the White House is now expecting us to believe were written over in recycling their backup tapes? Everyone finds it hard to believe, that in this day and age, those emails aren't somewhere!

Senator Specter: Emails? The destruction of the tapes containing evidence of the scandal have nothing to do with email! I'm not sure what you're talking about!

Reporter #2: Senator Specter, your press release must be referring to the missing torture tapes the CIA were previously ordered not to destroy. Even in that case, I don't think the American public believes those torture tapes were really destroyed, or at least there weren't copies made of them!

Senator Specter: Destroyed White House email tapes and destroyed CIA torture tapes? What is everyone talking about? I'm talking about the NFL explaining why it destroyed tapes of evidence from the New England Patriots cheating scandal!
