Congress Wondering What Happened With That Whole Roger Clemens Thing

WASHINGTON, DC—Members of Congress wondered aloud yesterday whether or not they were supposed to follow up on former pitcher Roger Clemens' four-and-a-half hour testimony before the House Committee of Oversight and Reform or if "that whole thing was over." "Did we decide if we were actually going to do something with that? Or were we just, I don't know, asking?" Rep.

"I mean, nobody's said anything to me about it. I just saw him on television the other day and remembered he was here. That was Clemens that was here, yeah? Hey, why was he here anyway?" Cummings later asked if Clemens testified before Congress this year or last year, and was shocked to learn that his appearance was in fact just under two months ago.
