U.S. Rep. John Faso knows a political ambush when he sees one

Dear Editor,

When U.S. Rep. John Faso, R-Kinderhook, heard of the town hall gathering to which he was to be invited as the guest attendee, he knew it was to be a political setup and how right he was not to be there.

The plan of Democratic Party supporters is to organize such politically organized gatherings and that such planned intrusions such as the unscripted appearance of U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-Cold Spring, into the neighboring congressman’s district is now to be their agenda in order to insult the integrity of the opposition and do everything possible to destroy the opposition’s representation in Washington.

It’s another display of shelling out the resources to polarize the selectively invited audience who for the most part have little or no knowledge of why they are being organized in the first place. It’s all spelled out in the May 13 issue. Such town hall politically charged events are being purposely organized in those states where they need to defeat the opposition by invading their opponent’s territory.

Experience has proven that by attending smaller gatherings throughout your representative area you get closer to the electorate and really get to know who they are, what their concerns are and how they feel about your representation of them.


It shows that few people know exactly what will happen with a new health plan, so the Democrats just throw out numbers like 60,000 people in Faso’s district alone will lose their health care. You know the old saying, ignorance is bliss.

The fact remains, if such a gathering of several hundred area residents were truly there to hear Faso, how come the representative of the Democratic Party who was not invited because he did not belong there received such a thunderous welcome when he purposely insulted his fellow congressman? Dirty politics for sure.
