Like many Republicans around the country, Wisconsin's Republicans have been doing their best to avoid their constituents and not have to listen to their anger or how they are not representing them. But since this is Wisconsin, our snowflakes tend to be bigger and uglier, even though we are going through an unseasonable warm spell.
Even Lyin' Paul Ryan is no exception.
Ryan's office stopped taking phone calls from his constituents. (Don't worry, he gave his personal phone number to all of his wealthy friends and benefactors - y'know, the people he truly represents.
So the people started a petition drive. But Ryan's office refused to accept the petitions.
So then the people set up a town hall meeting. Yep, you guessed it. Ryan didn't bother to show to meet his constituents:
Lining up behind microphones Sunday evening, a few hundred of Rep. Paul Ryan’s constituents directed their wrath and disapproval toward an empty chair.
“It says a lot to me that he’s not here,” said Lee Hansen of Racine, who served in the 82nd Airborne in the 1970s. “Maybe we should repeal and replace Paul Ryan.”
Forward Kenosha organizers scheduled the town hall meeting Sunday evening at a union hall to give residents of the 1st Congressional District a way to get their thoughts and opinions to the Janesville Republican.
