With final passage of Obamacare looming, Russ Carnahan has not held a townhall meeting since August. Last time Russ held an event people were not allowed to ask questions while OFA and SEIU controlled the handicapped entrance. Letting union members from Chicago in while actual constituents waited in long lines. Oh yeah, a vendor and a young lady were assaulted by union thugs in the parking lot.
So we waited in hopes that Russ would redeem himself and actually hold a real townhall at some point. We hoped he would put the muzzle on the attack dogs and actually answer some questions. Fat chance.
With no signs that Russ intends to face his constituents before the final vote, Ed Martin took things into his own hands. Ed set up a townhall meeting and invited Russ to come and speak then hear from the people. Here is the letter sent to Russ's office on January 8 2010. This letter is the follow up to a letter that Ed sent to Russ requesting a townhall in mid December. Click the image to enlarge.
The Martin campaign has yet to hear back from Carnahan so I went to find out if Russ is ducking Martin.
