Video: Leno Tweaks Rep. Marino

By Keegan Gibson, Managing Editor

In our zeal for April Fools Day, we missed a few stories that broke on Thursday night and Friday. One of which was bad news for Rep. Tom Marino, whose office has watched with dismay as the Congressman’s misunderstood comments on Libya made it all the way to the Tonight Show.

Marino spokeswoman Renita Fenick explained that the Congressman was referring to a lack of U.S. ground troops in the country.

“We read the Scranton Times article Tuesday morning and had no problem with it,” said Fenick. “We were surprised when some people seemed to be confused by it – even the reporter, Borys Krawczeniuk, told me that it never crossed his mind that Rep. Marino’s statement was unusual or questionable.”

“We stand by what the congressman said. We are not “in” Africa by any means. We do not have ground troops there and, as far as we know, there are no plans to go into Africa.  We understand – and believe that most people do – that a missile strike on a nation is a far cry from our military “going into”  a continent.”
