Hypocrisy, thy name is Congress

Congressman Eugene Green, a Democrat from Texas, is saying that if you're not from his home district, you're not welcome at his future town hall meetings. His plan to enforce this "rule" is to check photo IDs at the door.

He thinks that it is important that he only hear from HIS constituents, HIS voters but based on his actually voting record, he does not feel quite as strongly when it comes to general elections.

  • Voted no on requiring photo ID for voting in federal elections (Sept 2006)
  • Rejected photo ID requirements for voting (Sept 2005)

So to Eugene Green, it is more important to restrict his local town hall meetings to locals than it is to restrict US voting to US citizens. Nice...
