Last week, I launched the Chicken Dance Watch to keep track of endangered Democrats avoiding debates with their GOP challengers.
Today, the award goes to Democrat Rep. Russ Carnahan of Missouris. Instead of leaving just an empty chair, he sent…a DVD.
Missouri Republican News is reporting that Russ Carnahan (D-MO) was a no show at a candidate forum the other night:
Citizens of Ste. Genevieve gathered last evening to hear from the candidates wanting to represent them. As usual there was an empty seat where Congressman Carnahan should have been. The candidate forum, set up months ago by the local paper, was a timely chance to speak about the issues and ask for the support of the voters.
Instead of facing constituents Congressman Carnahan sent a canned speech filled with Pelosi talking points that he copied on a DVD and he sent to the paper in his place. He has been absent in his service and seems even in his campaign too.
Meanwhile Ed Martin addressed the crowd and personally asked for their support. He addressed their concerns and questions acting as a true representative should.
Bok, bok, bok, bok.
Carnahan’s goons have resorted to vulgar vandalism to support their ghost candidate. See here.
