Family Research Council's Perkins: Feingold's call for censure is "borderline treasonous behavior"

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, called Sen. Russ Feingold's introduction of a resolution to censure President Bush "borderline treasonous behavior."

On the March 13 edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, asserted in a discussion with host Joe Scarborough that the resolution to censure President Bush introduced by Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) on March 13 is "borderline treasonous behavior." Feingold proposed the censure for what he said was Bush's violation of the law in authorizing warrantless domestic eavesdropping.

The Family Research Council is a conservative political organization that, according to its website, "shapes public debate and formulates public policy that values human life and upholds the institutions of marriage and the family."

From the March 13 edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country:

PERKINS: You know that Senator Feingold is out in left field when [House Democratic Leader] Nancy Pelosi [CA] is distancing herself from him. I mean, this is -- in a time of war, this is borderline treasonous behavior. I mean, this takes politics to a new low. I mean, this literally -- what he is doing -- puts our military and our nation at greater risk by sending the message that we're divided, that we're not intent on protecting our nation against terrorists. This is a bad move on his part. And you can tell.
