I got the following letter by email today from Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC). The letter dated November 16th was in response to emails and letters I sent Hagan opposing the nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court in May and June. Is it any wonder that we have problems in Washington, DC when we send someone there who takes almost six months to respond to a constituent’s letter? If I had sent the same letter or email to Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), I would have received a reply within two weeks. I may have even had a phone call from one of his staff explaining Burr’s position on the issue.
Oh, by the way, Hagan did vote for Kagan. And to think, we in North Carolina – as well as the rest of the nation – have to deal with this for another four years before she comes up for re-election.
