"USADA seeks to strip Armstrong of his achievements and the substantial winnings that accompanied them without offering him even basic due process," Sensenbrenner said.
"USADA's authority over Armstrong is strained at best," Sensenbrenner said.
AND "California senators call for congressional review of USADA"

"A group of California state senators has asked that state's two U.S. senators to request a review of the U.S. Anti-doping Agency, USA Today reported Tuesday night. The request follows USADA's decision to hand Lance Armstrong a lifetime ban after he refused arbitration in the U.S. Postal Service conspiracy case last month."
Americans clearly are justified in their concerns that USADA is not acting for the best interests of cycling. They are also justified to ask why their tax dollars are going to support this renegade organization.
The UCI has shot itself in both feet as it chose not to confront USADA and its true lack of due process and Statute of Limitations violations.
"The UCI accepted USADA's jurisdiction for the investigation, but questioned the legality of banning Armstrong after more than eight years and as far back as 1998, suggesting this does not follow the rules of the World Anti-Doping Agency's Code."
