For immediate release: October 2nd, 2012
I would like to respectfully challenge you to a public debate, before this November’s election, with a format and location of your choice. This would be an opportunity for you to defend your record in light of the conditions in Congressional District 5 after 20 years of your leadership. It would also give you the chance to explain your support of homosexual marriage when the overwhelming majority of your constituents are against it.
In addition to the above, you could address what you find insulting in my statement that you are a member of the Socialist Party of America and the Congressional Progressive Caucus, (Progressive=Socialist=Communist). The Communist Party of America has already publicly stated that the Congressional Progressive Caucus are their allies. Your membership in these groups is a matter of public record.
I hope we can agree that the people deserve to know the truth about where their representatives stand. By accepting this challenge, you will show that you respect the people’s right to know the facts and are not trying to hide the truth from those you claim to represent.
