Democrat Rep. Pat Verschoore has issued a y’all come:
“I hope people participate [in the redistricting hearing] . . . Everyone says they want to be a part of the process—well, we’ll see. I’m hoping for a good turnout . . . People are concerned about redistricting, namely in our area about the 17th Congressional District meandering around.”
Gentle readers, I know you will not be shocked when I tell you this meeting that Verschoore hopes will produce “a good turnout” is scheduled for Wednesday at Rock Island City Hall at 2:00 p.m.!
This is understandable since most Democrats either don’t have jobs or belong to unions, which will always call off work for any political purpose.
Just as LBJ always announced troop increases in the middle of the day and Barack Obama chose to deliver his shallow, content-free partisan faux deficit speech in the middle of the day, Verschoore has scheduled his meeting when most people will be at work.
Good luck with that “good turnout” Pat—then you can blame voter apathy for just ramming through the Democrat plan.
Say what you will about Bobby Schilling, but he always schedules his town halls after 5:00, not at some hour he knows few will attend.
