Democrats 'serve' Eric Cantor with 'wanted' poster for Rep. Vern Buchanan



cantor.jpgWASHINGTON - Democrats today had a gift for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor: A wanted sign for Rep. Vern Buchanan.

Buchanan, R-Sarasota, on Monday skipped a deposition in a case involving a former business partner. Buchanan's camp told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune it was because his attorney was sick.

Democrats smell a dodge, and they've been trying to play up Buchanan's problems in hopes of defeating him.

Seconds after Cantor walked by came Florida Rep. David Rivera (seen in background of woman in green sweater) who also had a "wanted" poster pushed his way.
