Where Will It End?

So I'm having lunch in the bar area of a local wings place. There are TV's all over the place with various sports stuffs playing. One set of TV's has been playing various bits about the New England Patriots spying "scandal" (IMO, it couldn't happen to a nicer team, but I digress).

Then I look up and see Arlent Specter (R-PA)'s freaking face on the tube.

Here's my question: where in the Constitution does it outline that a Senator - on our dime - should have anything whatsoever to do with what the New England Patriots did or did not to wrong? Other than the already-basterdized Interstate Commerce clause, really, why is he spending our money on this? I mean, ok, the NFL has an "antitrust exemption", but really, should Arlen really be comparing this to the "C.I.A. destruction of tapes. Or any time you have records destroyed"?

Egads. Forgive me President Reagan, but I feel as though I may be losing hope.
