Oversight Panel’s Democrats Lock Out Republicans After Dispute – Political News – FOXNews.com

More of the honest and transparent government under Obama.

The Democratic chairman of the House committee responsible for government oversight has indefinitely locked Republican members out of the hearing room, following a dispute over a mortgage loan controversy.

Kurt Bardella, spokesman for ranking Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said Chairman Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., had the locks on the Republican entrance changed Tuesday.

The move was apparently was in retaliation for Issa’s efforts to subpoena records on Countrywide’s so-called VIP loan program and for a video Issa’s staff recorded of Democrats darting from their chambers a week ago in the face of a vote.

"They say we will have access to the hearing room when the general public does," Bardella told Foxnews.com. "I’m embarrassed for them."
