The other day I posted about Lindsey Graham’s Town Hall meeting here in South Carolina, and it wasn’t what he expected because, gosh durnit, there were Lib’ruls in the building. And I suggested that we are a growing number in this state and he might be best served by listening to us.
Well, another Republican Senator, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin apparently doesn’t think the people of his state, the people who hired him by election—and can fire him just as easily—and the people who pay his salary should ask to meet with him.
Johnson, who narrowly won reelection in November which should tell him something, has been avoiding his constituents and their requests for a town hall meeting during this latest Congressional recess, but recently, several hundred of his constituents held a town hall in Madison with an empty chair sitting in for the missing Johnson.
Hmmm, a Republican or an empty chair? How does one tell the difference? That’s a rhetorical question, though the move by We The People of Wisconsin did spur Ron Johnson to respond to their requests.
Senator Johnson sent a cease-and-desist letter to one constituent who had made regular calls and visits to his threatening to call the police and order the constituent’s arrest if they didn’t stop calling and visiting.
Yes, he did.
“Our office has done all that we can to assist you with your concerns. This letter acts as written notice of our expectation for you to discontinue your unwanted telephone calls and office visits. If you fail to comply with this notice, then we will have no other alternative but to contact the United States Capitol Police and report your noncompliance.”
Seriously? This asshat who works for the people of Wisconsin is threatening to arrest the people of Wisconsin if they don’t stop asking to speak to him?
That’s America in The Age of _____, y’all. The GOP does not want to hear from you.
But, in order to help out anyone who reads this bloggy thing and lives in Wisconsin, or anyone who just wants to remind Ron Johnson for whom he works, here’s his contact info:

Let him know that you want to talk to him and if he wants you arrested for making that request, then so be it.
Oh, and remind him that he’ll be out of a job as soon as possible.
Ron Johnson. The ISBL Asshat of the Week.
