While waiting in line for "Sales Tax Free Day" at the Apple store this morning, I found this in the News and Observer. Our fellow Kossack and my House Representative Brad Miller will be confronted at 4PM today with an angry mob of Wingers led by Triangle Conservatives.
Stephen Cannon of Raleigh NC is also planning to protest, but it is not clear from the N&O if he is part of Triangle Conservatives or another group. Says Cannon,"It is essential for congressmen to be available to their constituents." They claim that their real complaint is that Brad will not hold a Town Hall Meeting, despite getting death threats.
LuAnn Canipe, Miller's spokeswoman, said some of the calls have had an angry tone, and non was angrier than one Monday. " The caller said Miller is afraid to meet people because he knows it could cost him his life."
The Capitol Police are currently investigating.
I phoned Rep Miller's local office to give him my support and found out that this protest will be held at 4PM today. Please anyone in the Raleigh area come out and give your support to Brad Miller!
Here's the location of Brad Miller's office and the protest today at 4pm
