The Franking King?
Your tax dollars at work, letting you know what a great job Joe Sestak is doing.
Bob Brady ought to be ashamed of himself for keeping his constituents in the dark about how hard he works. Ditto Chaka Fattah, who at $1,440, spent even less.
UPDATE: Just got out of a meeting with Congressman Sestak. I asked him about this. He said "One of the largest responsibilities I have is communicating" with constituents.
Apparently it's also one of his most expensive.
"If I can communicate and explain what we're trying to do... It's a real sincere reaching out and trying to help."
Sestak earnestly bemoaned the tone in Washington and blamed it for the public's lack of respect and Congress.
He said the "most valuable commodity you have, the most precious, as an elected official is credibility. So that when a crisis happens people believe" what you're saying.
Wow! He didn't blink when I suggested that Congress lacks any and all credibility as evidenced by its record low approval rating. He smilingly pointed out that the media has an even lower approval rating than Congress.
Asked if he was wrong about the "surge," Sestak says "absolutely not."
It was the wrong strategy for our national security. He said that 50 percent of deployed national guardsman come home with some sort of "mental challenge," 40 percent suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Sounds high, doesn't it.
