"It's all rigged" says U.S. Senator on hot mic

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet was caught on camera complaining that the Senate's lame-duck session is "all rigged."

Bennet didn't know a C-SPAN microphone would pick up his comments just after the Senate voted against banning earmarks. He said,
"I mean, the whole conversation is rigged... The fact that we don't get to conversation before the break about what we're gonna do in the lame duck... It's just rigged."
