Daschle Gets Stuck in D.C. Snowstorm
Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle was caught on video Friday pushing his stranded car in the monster snowstorm pummeling the Mid-Atlantic
Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, whose nomination to President Obama's Cabinet was derailed by tax problems last year, was caught on video Friday pushing his stranded car in the monster snowstorm pummeling the Mid-Atlantic.
Washington, D.C., affiliate Fox 5 was covering the likely record-setting blizzard when it spotted Daschle, whose car was stuck along the roadway in northwest Washington. One of the station's photographers helped Daschle push the car.
D.C. officials have begged residents to stay indoors, but Daschle apparently didn't get the memo. Most people couldn't drive anywhere by Saturday because their cars and the roads were buried.
