After numerous recent scandals and avoiding his constituents for months, Rep. Mike Coffman making an appearance... at a private fundraiser sponsored by two Big Oil PACs. Coffman has carried numerous pieces of legislation in support of Big Oil, so a fundraiser with wealthy, fat cat, industry donors makes sense.
If ordinary Coloradans want to join Coffman at the fundraiser, the minimum price is $1,000. Most of Coffman's constituents can't afford to spend that kind of money to meet their congressman. But since Coffman has never introduced himself to them, and consistently refuses requests to hold a town hall meeting or even meet for coffee, it appears that this is the only way.
Are you tired of having to pay to get access to members of Congress? Sign our petition calling on Coffman to stop hiding from the voters in his district.
A few weeks ago, video surfaced of Coffman questioning the citizenship of President Barack Obama during a fundraiser this past spring, repeatedly claiming the president "is not an American." Since then, Coffman has virtually disappeared, holding no public events--the only exception apparently being fundraisers where well-heeled supporters pay for the privilege of meeting with him.
That's wrong. It's not what Coffman promised his district. And Coffman's constituents deserve better. Click here: sign our petition calling on Rep. Mike Coffman to stop hiding from his constituents now.
Thanks for your help in demanding that our political leaders do what they were elected to do --represent Colorado, not special interests.
