US Congressman questions role of USADA in Armstrong case

This is politics at its worst. Sensenbrenner is clearly not being motivated by any misuse of funds by USADA, but instead it is blatantly obvious his actions are primarily motivated by Trek being located in the district he represents. Sensenbrenner is doing little more than parroting the arguments advanced by Armstrong's defense team while slandering USADA over an issue he clearly knows little about.

USADA is certainly far from perfect and clearly the issues with Armstrong should have been dealt with long ago. That being said there has been a lot of progress in cleaning up the sport over the last decade plus and USADA has been a big part of that. It is very frustrating to watch this process complicated further by a politician with limited knowledge of the history and issues surrounding the case, motivated by all the wrong reasons.

2)H.R. 4223: SAFE DOSES Act
To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit theft of medical products, and for other purposes.

3)H. Rept. 108-461, Part 1 - ANABOLIC STEROID CONTROL ACT OF 2004 [PDF]
"Many athletic organizations conduct testing for steroids, but the illegal use of these substances continues to be a problem among professional athletes"
"Even more problematic than the use of these substances among professional athletes is the message their use sends to our young athletes, particularly adolescent males."
"Sadly, the use of these drugs is glamorized by professional athletes."
