FRC's Tony Perkins Calls Closure the "Height of Arrogance"
Baton Rouge, LA - This afternoon, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins attempted to deliver a letter to Senator Mary Landrieu's Baton Rouge office only to be told by a federal marshal that her offices were "closed for the holidays." Over 150 concerned citizens joined Perkins at a rally in front of Senator Landrieu's office to urge the Senator to oppose the government takeover of health care.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins made the following comments:
"We were stunned to discover why so many phone calls have been unanswered and met with continuous busy signals. As the Senate debates one of the most far reaching pieces of legislation in history, it's shocking that Senator Mary Landrieu would close her office to phone calls and visitors.
"Senator Landrieu sent press aides to offer the Senator's spin on the health care bill but she did not make a staffer available to receive letters or answer phone calls. Senator Landrieu knows that almost two thirds of Louisiana voters oppose the health care overhaul. However, refusing to take their phone calls is insulting and the height of arrogance.
"If Senator Landrieu's office had been open, she would have heard a clear message that we want her to stop this abominable health care bill that will force every American to support Planned Parenthood in the killing of unborn children, saddle families with higher insurance premiums, raise our taxes and deny our parents and grandparents the essential health care they need."
Chicken s**t. Just let them pass this monster. There are too many of us ready to fight. It’s just around the corner.
She opens the door, she gets dragged out and thrown into some kind of humilating and awkward display.
Say like an iron cage suspended over the street.
Which probably beats being tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail.
What a wonderful woman of the people. I guess she is at home counting her winnings. She knew she was dead meat anyway, now she has a nice golden parachute to land with. I wonder how much money she gets to pocket? Maybe President Palin’s AG can investigate and find out for us? Sleep tight Senator for tomorrow you will reap the whirlwind, SKANK.
So go to her house and deliver it personally.
You people elected her, and most likely will again, she sold her vote so now you know just what she really is all about.
“Clue”, It has NOTHING to do with the voters who but her there, NOTHING.
Bring back the stockades.
Time to picket them on the streets where they live. It was certainly okay with th Left when Sheehan did so at the Bush ranch.
landrieu is a whore. that’s it in a nutshell. and she knows she is. her senate.gov site is shut down, her offices are shut down..pos whore.
After all, they seem to know about housing and hookers!!!
Has Governor Jindal ever spoken out on this? The Nebraska governor did. Can’t see how Jindal can be helped by this politically.
Caller to the Howie Carr show said she tried to call John Kerry’s DC office. After many rings a message said to try later. Sounds like he pulled the plug on the phone. @sshat....
Well, I have sent some emails to my senators; as far as I can tell, I’m being ignored.
Early on, I also wrote to my representative. I even tried calling him. My email was returned as “undeliverable” (hard for me to figure out since the email was done as a form on his website), his voice mail was full and no one answered the phone. I just sent him another email pleading to his sense of decency (yeah, right) and urging him to represent everyone, not just a few, in voting against this monstrosity.
Let’s see if I get another “undeliverable” notice or if he just simply blows me off.
Have Federal Marshall’s been assigned to protect the Congresscritters? Why was a Federal Marshall at her office?
“So go to her house and deliver it personally.”
Which New Orleans whorehouse would that be?
That is the question.
Why were Federal marshals there to begin with?
There were so threats or angry crowds.
They think they can get away with this.
they are for now but not forever
Mary is at home counting and recounting her 30 pieces of silver.
‘Fats’ Landreu will be toast. Arrogant fat arsed traitor!
lalalalalalalalalallalalallalalalalalala I can’t hear you lalalaalalalalala
