And now a word from ProgressIowa:
Everyone has heard of Chuck Grassley’s 99 County Tour, right? It’s hard not to, as much as he talks about it.
But there’s a funny thing about that claim: most of his county events are private and not open to public audiences. Progress Iowa’s recent research shows Grassley hasn’t held a public event in 8 of Iowa’s 10 largest counties in 6 years! The counties he’s avoided hearing from the general public in make up 45% of the state’s population.
That’s why we’re renaming Grassley’s annual tour the Fake Grassley. He has established a pattern of hiding from Iowa’s most-populated areas where constituents might be more likely to disagree with him.
This Friday Grassley is coming back to Iowa after seeing Donald Trump nominated in Cleveland. We’re guessing for most of you, his one public town meeting on a Friday evening isn’t anywhere near you.
Check on our new FakeGrassley.com website to see just how far and share it: How Far Away Are You From Senator Grassley’s Town Hall?
And then afterward read our full report on the Fake Grassley to see how few times he’s held a public event in your county.
To give you an idea of how much Grassley avoids Iowa’s largest counties, here’s his record for the top 10:
Scott: 2 (none since May 2012)
Black Hawk: 0
Pottawattamie: 1 (none since August 2011)
- Dallas: 0
If Grassley’s town hall on Friday is near you, head on over to tell him how you feel about his historic Supreme Court obstruction!
Fix the typo in the caption — put the “i” in nothing — so I can screen capture this pic and send it to fellow Libbies.
