Rep. Thompson absent GOP rival


Hunger Games

To the Editor:

It is satisfying to read amongst this newspaper's letters to the
editor the news that our Congressman Glenn "GT" Thompson has deigned
to leave Capitol City to visit us proles in District Five. But I
wonder: during GT's many open Q&A events, has no-one dared to ask his
honor to provide an on-the-record comment on the Denny Hastert scandal?
How does GT explain how a former teacher and congressman from
Yorkville Illinois amassed millions without being on the Clinton
Foundation staff?

While our Congress is in recess, GT is likely hawking President Obama
and the US Chamber of Commerce's legislative priorities: the Trans-
Pacific trade agreement, the Export-Import Bank, and the importation
of more workers to depress wages. GT's much ballyhood bipartisanship
is terrible for the American people. What will be the return on
investment for GT and his staff?

Is there no citizen patriot from Cameron to Venango, from Bradford
to Titusville who will challenge GT in next year's Republican
primary? Our nation's children and grandchildren desperately need us
to unseat our bipartisan Beltway kleptocracy.
