I don’t know what I can add to the Item below except its hard to believe that this guy is a United States Senator. Even worse, he’s MY United States Senator:

At a Sunday press conference calling for stricter rules on concentrated laundry detergent pod packaging that some children have mistaken for candy, New York Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer admitted that even he has felt drawn to down a few detergent pods himself.
“The incidents are skyrocketing,” the New York Daily News reported Schumer said during a joint press conference with medical professionals. “These pods were supposed to make household chores easier, not tempt our children to swallow harmful chemicals. I saw one on my staffer’s desk and I wanted to eat it.”

According to Schumer, during the last six months 40 New York children have fallen victim to the pods, mistaking them for food, only to end up hospitalized. He added that by the end of June, there had been 1,210 nationwide instances of children eating detergent packs.

The New York senator — who added, “I don’t know why they make them look so delicious” — called on the Consumer Product Safety Commission to impose tighter regulations on the the packaging for the colorful one-time use laundry detergents.
