A cringe-inducing moment for GOP Rep. Frank LoBiondo, who confuses the 1st Amendment with Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution when confronted by a voter at a town hall meeting.

Next time, spare yourself the added embarrassment and just say: “I don’t know.”

Hat tip: The Hill (which hat tips Paul Mulshine of the Newark Star Ledger):

Republican Rep. Frank LoBiondo (N.J.) received heavy criticism from a Tea Party activist at a recent town hall meeting in his district.

In a YouTube video, the eighth-term congressman is grilled on his knowledge of the Constitution after he misstates the content of Article I Section I of the document.

The man who criticizes LoBiondo’s knowledge of the document is donning a “Don’t Tread on Me” t-shirt, a Revolutionary War slogan popular among Tea Party activists.

The lawmaker represents what is considered a safe seat but the video is an illustration of a recent poll that shows four in ten Tea Party activists are Democrats or independents, suggesting that Republicans may not receive their full support in the fall.

I remind you that LoBiondo is one of the notorious GOP Cap & Tax 8’ers — all of whom would do well to brush up on their constitutional knowledge. Here.

Update: The questioner, unfortunately, is a 9/11 Truther. Sigh. Well, even Truthers can expose real truths once in a blue moon…

Twitter reader Paul Stagg quips: “…so a crazy 9/11 truther has a better understanding of the Constitution than a congressman? I’m not really surprised.”
