Sen. Mark Warner: Let’s deport Justin Bieber

The move to kick troubled popster Justin Beiber out of the country got a powerful backer Tuesday: Sen. Mark Warner, who was a guest on a Virginia radio station’s morning show, offered to sign the online petition to the White House looking to deport the Canadian-born singer.

The Virginia Democrat indicated that he thought the Biebs might not be the best influence on the young folk — including his own kids.

“As a dad with three daughters, is there someplace I can sign?” he asked with a laugh, when prodded by the hosts of Chesapeake-based FM99’s “Rumble in the Morning.”
