During a town hall meeting last week, Republican Rep. Sean Duffy refused to take a position on whether transvaginal ultrasounds should be mandatory for women seeking abortions because (in his words) “I haven’t had one.”

Though they campaigned on a platform of reducing the deficit and ridding wasteful spending, more than a half-dozen Tea Party congressmen have collectively spent over $100,000 in taxpayer money [...]

It essentially runs a few hundred miles east from the Athabasca Oil Sands in eastern Alberta Canada before heading south into the United States.
