I just paid to have my Congressman mail his Congressional literature to me. It says so right on the back:
“This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense.”
If I was the Congressman I’d do the same thing. Franking privileges for Congressmen are as old as the Republic. On the other hand, I’d be a little embarassed to tell folks to attend my “Motherhood and apple pie” Forum. No, I’m just joking. His meeting down in North Branch is being called the “Hometown Values Forum.” None of those Republican “Family Values” for Jim.
