Rep. Tim Bishop (D-NY) Runs from Constituents

Gee, it looks like Long Islanders don’t much care for their representatives toeing the liberal line of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. And when they come out to express their displeasure, Congressman Tim Bishop can’t take any time to address their concerns – instead, he runs away (skip to 45 seconds or so in to get a quick glance at Mr. Bishop running into a townhall meeting):

Lest you think I exaggerate – that he’s not really running from them – Congressman Bishop has now canceled at least one of his upcoming townhall meetings. He had previously been scheduled to meet with constituents in Montauk on July 1; now that event has been cancelled.

Why don’t Democrat Members of Congress want to hear from the voters?
