The right wingers and the health care mob have hit again. This time going after my member of Congress, Brad Miller. Talking Points Memo has the scoop:
The threatening call in question happened earlier this week.
"The call to the D.C. office was, 'Miller could lose his life over this,'" said Canipe. "Our staffer took it so seriously, he confirmed what the guy was saying. He said, 'Sir is that a threat?' and at that time our staffer was getting the phone number off caller ID and turning it over to the Capitol Police."
They haven't heard anything back from the police yet, but they did get the caller's number. So this could develop into something soon enough.
Canipe explained that Miller had no plans for a town hall before and won't be holding any now, due to this event and the examples he's already seem from the around the country: "Our point is, we're not gonna be bullied into having a town hall so it can then be interrupted by the fake grassroots folks."
I'm going to call Brad Miller and tell him that people who actually voted for him support him and support real health care reform. If anyone gets wind of the wing nuts trying to take over a local town hall, let me know and I'll be happy to be there and yell back.
