Illinois Democrat Shuts Down Questions at Town Hall Meeting

A video posted at Jim Hoft’s Gateway Pundit blog shows Illinois Rep. Melissa Bean using a muscular security guard to squelch unwelcome questions at a town hall meeting.

The meeting was held Thursday at the public library in Round Lake, Illl. While captions in the video label the security guard “Bean’s thug,” one Illinois source said Monday that the man is actually employed by the library. The video also shows an aide to the Democrat congresswoman asking a constituent at the meeting to stop recording.

Illinois’ 8th District, running from the northern suburbs of Chicago up to the Wisconsin border, was held by Republican Phil Crane until 2004, and Bush carried the district with 55% of the vote in 2004. Like many other vulnerable Democrats in this mid-term campaign, Bean has refused to debate her Republican challenger, Joe Walsh.
