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.

I Am Pissed!

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....


It is time that the voters took a lesson. Complain about the representatives,but who the hell voted for them,the people. The people need to vet any and all before pulling down the lever. You are getting what you voted for. I dont have any sympathy for people who blindly vote for someone. If you dont vet your choice than dont vote. The right to vote comes with responsibility to yourself and country.The people are the problem,we have let the elected to run over OUR CONSTITUTION.  Your vote cant be undone the next day after you wake up. Vote responsibile or dont vote.
YOU are so right Lawrence
Yea Chabots may be a moron, but don't they teach about the Constitution in the Police Academy? This by far not the first ignorant cop that has violated a citizens rights and even the town council here where I live just lost a law suit because a town cop violated somebodies right. I mean it's not like someone was filming another Rodney King episode.
Just left this bozo a message on his answering service.  These are the kind of dummies that need to go...Dem or Repub.
Interesting that on July 19, 2011, Rep. Chabot said on Facebook:

Rep. Steve Chabot
Increased Debt+ More Taxes DOES NOT = jobs. Tune in to 700 WLW at 12:30pm today to hear my thoughts on Cut, Cap, and Balance
July 19 at 8:32am

. . .and yet he voted "yes" to pass the Boehner/Reid/BHO legislation that will raise the debt ceiling for BHO (until after the 2012 elections) and says it will cut spending over 10 yrs, only future congress's don't have to abide by these cuts in their budgets.


Is this the type of representative you voted for OH District 1?
This is so dated. Nothing so old as old news.
