There's Your Sign

As if we need any more confirmation that Mike Rogers does not, in fact, represent the people of Michigan's Eighth District, Judy over at Living Blue has a story about some constituents who had an appointment to meet with Mr. Rogers when they visited Washington, D.C. last week:

The group of nine constitutents were among 2,000 UAW members in town for the UAW Community Action Program meeting and had scheduled a meeting with Rogers for 3 p.m. They had already heard from both Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow, who spoke to the event on Monday.

But when they showed up for their confirmed appointment with their congressional representative -- not a last-minute drop-in visit -- Rogers was nowhere to be seen.

In fact, the constituents -- who are in effect Rogers' bosses because they pay his salary and decide whether to keep him on each November -- had trouble getting their collective foot in the door.

As one member of the group said, "All of these constituents had issues that they wanted to discuss with him (Rogers) but instead we met with his Legislative Director, Mike Ward - in the hallway!"

Hop on over to LivingBlue for the rest of the story.
