North Carolina Congressman Brad Miller has upped the ante.
Recently, his press secretary said that Miller would not conduct health care town halls with his constituents due to a death threat over the proposed overhaul. Capitol Hill police reportedly are investigating the threat.
Now, Miller says that he is one of hundreds of lawmakers who have received such threats.
"Hundreds" would indicate a good portion of the 535 members in the House and Senate. Has Miller or his staff spoken with all of them? If not, what source is he relying on to make such a bold accusation?
More to the point, have any reporters asked Miller or anyone else to substantiate the claims? That might be a good idea, given the fact that liberals are now using the threats as a catalyst to avoid the public at town hall meetings. A tidy excuse, I would say, that needs to be vetted.
