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.
“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
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.
