Two Florida congress members, Republicans Anna Paulina Luna of St. Petersburg and Matt Gaetz of Fort Walton Beach, have been leaders in calling for congressional investigation of unidentified aerial phenomena, or “UAPs,” more commonly called UFOs.
Some think that’s important; others consider it silly.
Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key, who frequently sends out “Instapoll” emails to constituents asking their opinions on issues, recently sent out a question about UAPs.
Under the headline “Little Green Men?” it asked whether this is “a serious issue that Congress should investigate further?”
As of early last week, the results were 48.6 percent yes to 51.4 percent no.
What about Buchanan’s own opinion? He’s not saying.
For the past three weeks, inquiries to Buchanan’s spokesperson haven’t produced any comment from the congressman on whether investigating “little green men” is a worthwhile use of congressional resources.
