Why in the world is Hagan wanting Jim Barnes' resignation? Barnes is the one who brought the BEAN LEE EMAILGATE to light! Without him, we would not even KNOW about it. So why target him along with them? I don't get it...unless...they don't want someone around who will get the goods on the key people? Blow the whistle on the "good ole gals"? They should be thanking Barnes, not calling for him to resign along with the crooks he exposed!
