Russ Carnahan rattled at Cash for Clunkers presser

Carnahan held a press conference at McMahon Ford in south St. Louis city. Constituents who showed up to politely and peacefully voice their concerns were both barred from entering the lobby where Carnahan was fielding press inquiries and prevented from asking their elected official any questions.

The congressman was nearly drowned out by chants of “Can Carnahan!” He even got into a verbal scuffle with a reporter who asked the congressman a valid question, a question Carnahan avoided. He would only address the constituents as “naysayers.” It’s unfortunate that we live in an era where showing up to voice your concerns to your elected official is deemed “disruptive.”
