Senate Republicans are investigating whether backlogged U.S. employment regulators are using Craigslist ads to pursue cases against businesses that no outside party has brought to their attention. 

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) has asked the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) if the agency used classified advertisements site to solicit complaints, while the agency has 75,000 cases pending.

"The senator's office has not yet received a response from the EEOC," said an aide to Alexander, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) committee. 

The inquiry follows the appearance of a Craigslist ad posted earlier this year — with with an EEOC email address attached — asking for people to contact the agency if they were discriminated against by the Texas Roadhouse restaurant chain.

The chain — known for its line-dancing staff — is battling a 2011 EEOC suit alleging the company does not hire workers over 40.

Republicans such as Alexander and Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) have criticized EEOC officials for filing suits against businesses like Texas Roadhouse —despite no one filing any formal complaints against the businesses and the agency's backlog.

Even if the republicrats get the information they say they are "demanding", they will not do anything about it.  It just makes for poor sideshow.

Democrat Disaster! 53% Of Black Voters, 60% Of Other Minorities Say Liberal Media Trying To Help Democrats Impeach Trump

Thanks to President Donald Trump ALL Americans now know the mainstream fake-news media is an extension of the Democrat Party.

In a recent poll a majority of black voters and minority voters say the media is trying to help Democrats impeach President Trump.

And half of FOX News too, by the way.

CNS News reported:

Both black voters and other minority voters are more convinced than white voters that most reporters are trying to help impeach President Donald Trump, rather than report the news fairly – with a majority of each of the three groups holding that view – a new Rasmussen Reports survey reveals.

In the national voter survey, conducted November 12-13, 53% of all voters said most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump:

“When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?”:

“Help impeach President Trump”: 53%
“Block his impeachment”: 8%
Report “news in an unbiased an unbiased manner”: 32%

But, 53% of black voters and 60% of other minorities, compared to 51% of whites, said reporters are trying to get Trump rather than report the news fairly.
