Constituent Hijacks Townhall Meeting to Stick it to Boehner

Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL) ruffled a few feathers at a townhall meeting on January 3, when he was asked if he would be voting to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker. “Are you going to vote for him or not?” questioned a constituent. When the Congressman tried to brush off the uncomfortable question by saying that his vote was of little consequence, one angry constituent gave him an earful.

“I’ll tell you what it does. It gives you some political capital with people like us. Even if you lose once or twice, at least we know you are fighting for us,” the man said. “But when you say, ‘Oh, if I don’t vote for it,’ then you’re not fighting for us. What you’re doing is you’re bending. We didn’t put you there to bend.”
