Jeff Flake Tries to Shut Out His Competition
I learned from Seeing Red AZ that Congressman Jeff Flake is using his clout in his home legislative district, State Legislative District 22, to keep his constituents from having the opportunity to hear from another candidate for the Arizona Congressional District 6 seat he now occupies, Jeff Smith, a man I have met and who I think would be an excellent representative. Flake has been in Washington too long. He originally ran on a promise to self term limit to three terms. He is now running for his sixth. He has also bought into the buncombe that carbon dioxide is a pollutant that needs to be regulated and is co-sponsoring legislation to tax emissions (HR 2380).
What's the matter, Mr. Flake? Are you feeling a bit insecure about your record lately? The voters in AZ6/State District 22 deserve an opprotunity to hear what Mr. Smith has to offer them. If you are confident of your record, what do you have to be afraid of?
LD 22 meets on the second Thursday of each month. The meeting location is undisclosed. The widely distributed GOP calendar of events lists District Chairman Chad Heywood at (480) 388-6149 or email him at email@example.com for further information. This would be a good opportunity to ask about the restrictive policies and let him know you want to hear from all the candidates.
