John Kline is an empty chair?

Rep. John Kline (R-MN) has a very simple reelection strategy: never, ever appear in public at an event you don’t completely control. If you’re a resident of Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District and you are not a right wing Republican, you have no access to your Congressman.

If you show up at his district office to ask for a meeting, his staff will call the cops.

So Democrats in his district are getting ironic about his unwillingness to meet with constituents.

The 2nd Congressional District “Non-Representees” are still trying to get that August recess meeting with John Kline. I understand he had one of his carefully crafted Tele-Town Hall meetings recently – but Non-Representees do not get invited to those things.

So, the 2nd Congressional District is going to have an “official” town hall event and if John Kline decides to come – GREAT! If he doesn’t…well, hey we can take our que from the Republican Convention and we will take on the “empty chair”.(After all, isn’t he CHAIRman Kline?)

Tuesday August 20th
at the Westcott Library meeting room
in Eagan at 5:30pm.

Come to think of it, we will probably get just as much info from the chair as we would from Kline anyway.

Is that like when Al Franken holds a "Town Hall Meeting" during his election campaign at the SEIU Union Hall and only Democat supporters are allowed in?
