Walberg Watch Video - Responding to a Constituent

The Walberg Watch Video of the Week:

On this Independence Day, what better way to show your patriotism than to demand better representation from your government? That's what it's all about!

For the original Walberg Watch coverage of the incident, click here. For an incident in which Mr. Motta actually had a good response from Congressman Walberg's office, click here.

For more information on the bills mentioned in the video:

HR 1415 (Restoring the Constitution Act)

HR 1070 (Stamp Out Gang Violence Act - 110th Congress)

HR 1070 (Constitution Restoration Act - 109th Congress)

HR 69 (Disability Benefit Fairness Act)

HR 699 (Pledge Protection Act)

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

I'm sorry, but as much as I'd like to see Walberg lose as anyone, this wasn't really worth the time and effort it took to put together. This is an obvious cluster of errors, most likely done by a lowly congressional staffer who was lazy with his/her proofreading. This isn't worth paying any more attention to, other than getting a little chuckle out of. Otherwise, it makes for a poor argument to unseat the incumbent.
I understand what Jim is saying regarding the typo aspects, however, apparently my support of a civil liberties issue was chalked up as if I was supporting something else, possibly an ultra consersative position regarding church and state. That to me is where the major problem is, that a constituent not only wasn't heard on the issue of his choosing, but was even thought to be supporting something on the other end of the civil liberties spectrum. It's like voting for one candidate and not only having your vote not get counted for him, but having it get counted for his opponent - a double whammy!

This isn't representation, it's misrepresentation.
