"Arkansas senators join call for ‘caging’ investigation."

On Monday, Sens. Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) called for the Justice Department to investigate allegations of “caging” surrounding former U.S. attorney Tim Griffin. Today, both Arkansas Sens. Blanche Lincoln (D) and Mark Pryor (D) said that they support the investigation. “If a citizen’s right to vote is being threatened, I think without a doubt it is a very appropriate thing to investigate,” said Lincoln. “There are enough suggestions out there that lend itself to that.”
