Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) says he will be going around speaking with constituents at more than a dozen events in his home state during the Senate’s two-week spring recess.
But most of the public will have no idea how to find him, because his office is keeping the details of those events secret to avoid protesters.
“Political operatives [from Washington, D.C.] are trying to hijack Sen. Grassley’s meetings with Iowans, and it’s more proof that they care more about politics than giving people a voice,” Levine told the World-Herald. She did not return additional request for comment from The Huffington Post on the need for secrecy and how Grassley’s staff members were publicizing those events.
Grassley epitomizes the obstructionist behavior of the ReThugs in Congress over the last generation.
Not to put to fine a point on it, but he is the sort of flaming fascist racist that needs to be taken out behind the barn. Carrying his own shovel. Who gives a flying fuck what his opinion on the matter is? The Constitution trumps his stupid personal beliefs.
Ultimately Grassley’s ability to get away with this behavior says more about the cowardice of the American people than it does about him.
After all, we already knew he was a self-involved, senile bigot.
