Sen. Ron Johnson responds to “worst week in Washington” designation

Who had the worst week in Washington?

According to the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza, it was Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.

The senator was quick to respond to the ‘award’ with a statement this afternoon:

“The Washington Post — the poster child of Washington status quo — said I had the ‘Worst Week in Washington.’ Benghazi was a failure of leadership by Secretary Clinton: before, during and after the terrorist attack. I dared to actually demand that Secretary Clinton explain why she refused to debrief her own staff and then provide truthful information to the American people. In Washington, demanding the truth is apparently a sin. Every week that Washington leadership continues to sweep its dirt under the carpet, ignore America’s economic plight and turn a blind eye to its own out of control spending is a bad week for me, the people of Wisconsin and every American.”
