CNN Crossfire discussed Friday the Republican Senator George Voinovich of Ohio skipping a hearing by the Senate Environments and Public Works Committee on Thursday because he didn’t want to hear from Backstreet Boys star Kevin Richardson, claiming celebrities were becoming a sideshow in Senate hearings recently.

He claims his own expertise is that he’s flown over a couple of mountains. I can guarantee you, there are a lot of experts who have flown over a bunch of mountains, who can give better and more serious testimony.”
