Romney says federal workers ‘look for places they can interfere’

The head of the National Federation of Federal Employees blasted Romney’s comments as “deeply offensive and completely out of touch with reality.”

“The next time Governor Romney flies into a city, drives to his campaign stop, and leaves safely,” President William R. Dougan said in a statement, “he should thank the air traffic controllers who made his flight smooth, the grant processors who directed the funds to pave that highway, and the 24-hour secret service detail that protected his right to speak his mind.”

NFFE represents about 110,000 federal workers.
