Senate Hearing Postponed Due To Coburn Cancer

     From the Huntington, WV Herald-Dispatch:
Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn has had a recurrence of prostate cancer and is undergoing further evaluation and treatment, according to spokesmen for the conservative Republican.
Spokesman John Hart said in a brief statement to The Associated Press that the 65-year-old lawmaker will be out for the rest of the week but will be back "as soon as he's able, hopefully next week."
This week's treatments, in Oklahoma, forced postponement of another hearing as to findings of a two-year probe into alleged abuses in how Social Security disability benefits were approved at Huntington's federal Office of Disability Adjudication and Review, said spokesman Aaron Fobes to The Herald-Dispatch.
