I recounted yesterday, verbatim, an e-mail exchange with U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin's press secretary that ended where it began: He wouldn't answer my question of whether Griffin would vote to shut down government if he doesn't get his way on defunding or delaying implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.
Arkansas Democratic Party demonstrators tried to get an answer to that question from Griffin at a Republican Party event last night. A grim-faced Griffin ignored the question and drove off. If you see him, try yourself to see if a constituent can get a yes or no answer. Same thing for Tom Cotton, too.
I gather the fish fry attendees didn't appreciate the flyer offered by the Democratic visitors.
