The Orlando townhall wasn’t open to the public, either. There seems be a lot of that going around. JammieWearingFool reports:
We noted Monday that Florida Democrat Alan Grayson was holding his town hall meeting inside a local union headquarters with the union laughably claiming they weren't involved.Well, apparently things got pretty testy last night.
Some people waited for hours and never got inside a town hall meeting for health care reform, held in downtown Orlando and hosted by Congressman Alan Grayson.
Before the public meeting began at 7:45 p.m., the Democratic Executive Committee gathered for a special question and answer session with the congressman. While they were asked to give up their seats at the conclusion of the session, not all of them left.
Outside were dozens of angry people who thought they would have a chance to be heard.
Well now, what could possibly go wrong when a congressman schedules a public meeting inside a union hall? Let’s think. Hmm…
Out of the mere 125 seats available for the public in a city the size of Orlando, only thirty people were allowed in after they had waited for hours in the Florida sun for hours because the hall had been prefilled before the doors were even opened. Sound familiar?
November, 2010 folks. November, 2010.
