Evil Dick In Congressman's Office Acts Like Evil Dick Toward War Widow
A poor gal named Marianne Stringer, from Florida, lost her husband to Agent Orange-related cancer he picked up in Vietnam, THANK YOU ROBERT MCNAMARA, and has since written hundreds of congressmen about increasing benefits for military families, because come on. One such letter went to the office of Texas Rep. Mac Thornberry, a member of the Armed Services Committee, and said, "Please, help us to understand your reluctance in supporting [her effort]... If you do not understand the clear intent of this bill, we will be happy to furnish you with any information you may be seeking." Unfortunately for everyone, the Thornberry aide who responded to Stringer happened to be anEvil Dick from Hell.
Michael Clauser, national security legislative assistant to Thornberry, wrote that Stringer -- a savvy longtime advocate on the issue -- was a “resident of Palm Bay, Florida. Your Congressman is Rep. Bill Posey.”
He then instructed Stringer to “discontinue emailing me” and warned “I will interpret any further communications with me from you or non-constituent members of your organization as harassment and report your name and address to the Capitol Police.”
Posey, a Republican shot back: “It’s unconscionable... My staff knows that one of the ways to submit their resignation is to say we can’t help if you’re in someone else’s district.”
Thornberry's chief of staff issued a statement saying Clauser's psychotic anger-babble is "in no way reflective of the culture of this office or the way Congressman Thornberry expects his staff to conduct themselves. Especially toward members of America’s military family."
What's the over/under on the Evil Dick's firing... 3:30 this afternoon?
