I can understand...

Post by T on Sat Aug 26, 2017 12:15 pm

I can understand why any elected official would be reluctant to talk to the news media. What they say can be manipulated.  I see Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, Breibart News, etc., do that to Democrats all the time.

But with Poliquin, it goes beyond the news media.

Poliquin refuses to answer constituent e-mails.

Poliquin refuses to answer constituent phone calls.

Poliquin refuses to answer constituent letters.

In general, Poliquin refuses to talk with the people he represents if they ask a question he feels the answer could jeopardize his political future.

He is an "unprincipled coward".

Audio: Behind closed doors, Bruce Poliquin says talking to press could cost him his seat

Speaking behind closed doors this week at a Bangor cocktail reception hosted by a conservative foundation, U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin said he deliberately avoids talking to the press because he doesn’t want to provide “them and everyone else the ammunition they need and we lose this seat.”
