Conservative lawmakers bring God to Capitol Visitor Center

Seven years in the making, the Capitol's new Visitor Center opened Tuesday. But Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., denounced its displays as "left-leaning" and said many "distort our true history." He was joined in his dismay by U.S. Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Roger Wicker, R-Miss. At DeMint's insistence, "In God We Trust" will soon be added to the displays.
