Regrettably the Democrats do not have a monopoly on stupid Congressmen. It is an almost monopoly, as Democrats like Maxine Waters and Frederica Wilson lower the bar almost daily. But there is a Republican Congressman who has taken stupidity to a new level.
Who is it?
Steve Chabot of Ohio.
On August 22, Chabot held a town hall meeting. He held the meeting at a public school and Chabot’s staff ordered police to confiscate cell phone cameras.
Here is the video.
I don’t know any other way to put this. Chabot is a moron. First, you cannot confiscate the property of a private citizen without a warrant or some other due process. Second, and I will type this slowly just in case Chabot is reading this so he will understand this. PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT A CRIME.
If you go in public, you can expect to be photographed and recorded on video. Perhaps Chabot should go back and read the Constitution.
A call to Congressman Chabot’s office in Washington referred TPN to Chabot’s spokesman in his District office. Repeated calls to that office were not answered, as the line remained busy.
Perhaps the call the Congressman should get is a call to learn what the Bill of Rights guarantees or a call to get out of his job.
Chabot is not the only astupid Republican Congressman.
I submit the name of Rob Woodall (GA-7), who gave as his reason for voting in favor of the 2.4 trillion debt limit increase, the promise that the Senate would vote on a constitutional amendment for balancing the budget. After he made this glittering statement of colossal ignorance, a lady in the audience asked him, "What if it's voted down?" To which his only reply was that we need to get out and vote. Well, the last time I checked, GA already has two Republican senators....
IS THERE ANYONE IN THE 7TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF GEORGIA WHO IS A TEA PARTY PERSON THAT CAN RUN AGAINST THIS GUY IN THE PRIMARY? HELP, PLEASE!!!!
