Another Teabagger Republican trying to hide from the public: Jaime Herrera Beutler.

Rep. Herrera Beutler holds 'community coffee' gathering in Longview

<snip>

U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler said Tuesday she's happy with the smaller settings of her invitation-only "community coffees" and isn't planning to hold another large-scale town hall.

About 60 people attended her latest gathering at Judy's Restaurant in Longview on Tuesday morning, a fraction of the attendance at earlier town halls in her Southwest Washington district.

To Herrera Beutler, a Camas Republican in her first term, it's about maintaining the quality of discussion with constituents without the influence of outside interests.

"I get to hear what real people are thinking, not people who organize from Portland or Seattle," Herrera Beutler said.


Portland and Seattle residents need not apply.

Especially if you support unions.

Sweet Jesus, she hides from her own constituents.

And the union workers of Longview/Kelso don't take note.

Rigghhhtt.

1. Meeting your constituents isn't
going to the club for coffee. It's meeting them all, in public. All the people, not the special pedigree.
