    I appreciate your courteous reply.  I thought you must have had other dual citizens in mind because you wrote:

    ... Schumer - he, like a number of others in Congress, has dual citizenship.
    So it seemed that somewhere you were informed (or misinformed) that multiple members of Congress have dual citizenship. If this is true, or if it is a lie that is being spread maliciously, it is worth getting to the source. Although you have retracted your comment, the [mis]information is still out there.

    I don't see much difference between dual citizenship and dual loyalty unless there is a suggestion that a member of Congress is loyal to the non-US citizenship and disloyal to the US - then there would be no dual loyalty despite dual citizenship, but the member of Congress would be disloyal to us. Not a possibility I would like to entertain about elected Democrats.

    Anyway, you can choose not to discuss your source further - perhaps it was inherently not credible or not respectable - but I do think it was at least worth trying to figure out how these kinds of lies (not really very different from the whole Obama-born-in-Kenya thing) get circulated and believed.
