Maybe the Count isn't a real congressman after all?
Indiana United to Protect Social Security is sponsoring a Social Security townhall meeting downstairs at the St. Joseph County Public Library in South Bend at 6:30 PM next Tuesday, June 7th.
That's in phase-out man and notorious privatization flip-flopper Rep. Chris Chocola's (R) district. And, I guess not <$Ad$>surprisingly, he's refusing to show up.
A TPM Reader from the district tells me that the Count's excuse is that the sponsors of the event don't 'have a plan'. So there's nothing to talk about.
In any case, they're apparently going to have an empty chair on the stage for the absent congressman. So if you're from Indiana's 2nd district try to stop by.
And if you attend, and you take some pictures, let us know. We'd like to share them with the rest of our readers, especially Chocola's empty seat.
