Senator: Move Cyber Jobs Away from D.C.; 'Some of Those Jobs Need to Be Located Outside the Blast Zone'
11:02 AM, Aug 27, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER
Senator Mary Landrieu, a Democrat from Louisiana, is making the case that some "cyber" jobs need to be moved away from the Washington, D.C. area -- and to Louisiana, where those people might be physically safer.
“Those jobs can’t all be based inside Washington, D.C., and Arlington, Va.,” she explained to a local paper. "Some of those jobs need to be located outside the blast zone."
Landrieu did not explain what blasts she expects to hit the Washington, D.C. area, or when those blasts might hit.
Landrieu is up for reelection, which might explain why she's trying to bring some more jobs to her home state. And that she'd be willing to use whatever rhetoric necessary in order to make her case.
