Paid for by YOU.
Funny, I don't remember so many "CONSTITUENT UPDATES" last year when Frank Pallone didn't have to defend his job.
In yesterday's mail there was a new piece from Francis, Jr.
The tag line under his name is Representing the People of the Sixth District of New Jersey. There he goes lying right off the bat. Last August at his town hall meetings he told thousands of his constituents that he didn't care what they thought about his health care bill, that he was standing with Nancy Pelosi and Henry Waxman, "the finest people I know," he said, and declared how proud he is of the health care bill that he wrote, "not Obama, not Pelosi, it's my bill." That night Frank Pallone made it very clear that he does not represent the people of the 6th district of New Jersey. This November we the people are going to fire Frank.
Immediately under the "Representing.." tag line is FIGHTING FOR WOMEN. That must be why it was addressed to my wife and not me. Now I know why we didn't receive the one targeting senior citizens that I read about a few weeks ago. Phoney Palloney is targeting his CONSTITUENT UPDATES based upon demographics. That sounds like a political campaign to me, not a CONSTITUENT UPDATE. Is there any doubt that Francis, Jr. is touting his FIGHTING FOR WOMEN credentials because his opponent is a woman? Who is he fighting anyway? He, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Barack Obama are running the whole show down there in Washington, at least until January. Who is he fighting with?
Over the next several days I will be picking apart Phoney Palloney's Farcical Franking piece and demonstrate why it is a campaign piece, complete with distortions, not a CONSTITUENT UPDATE.
For now, I propose that Congressional "Franking" be prohibited six months prior to a Congressional election and I challenge Anna Little and Scott Sipprelle to both propose legislation banning franking during that time frame and to pledge to refrain from doing so if that legislation doesn't pass when they are serving in Congress.
