Democrats In Red States Having A Rough Time Defending Impeachment Back Home

BY Kristina Wong
7 Oct 2019


House Democrats in red states who have come out in support of impeachment are having a rough time defending their decision back home.

Democrats who are back home for two weeks in districts that supported President Trump in 2016 are having to answer questions on impeachment – whether they like it or not.

At one town hall, Illinois, Rep. Sean Casten (D-IL) was confronted by a woman who “tore into” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), accusing them of “lying their little butts off,” according to a report by Politico.

She said the whistleblower complaint “looks like a bunch of 13-year-old girls gossiping.”

At another event, another constituent asked Casten why he was not condemning former Vice President Joe Biden’s actions. Trump has said Biden and his son Hunter Biden should be investigated for their actions in Ukraine. Biden pressured Ukraine to fire the chief prosecutor, who had opened a corruption investigation on a Ukrainian gas company that employed his son for over $50,000 a month. The Bidens have denied any wrongdoing.

Casten has told his constituents that there’s “no there thereon the Biden story,” and that a voter who asked him about Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 election was espousing a “deep-down-the-rabbit-hole, crazy conspiracy theory,” according to Politico.

Fox River Grove resident Steven Wood said he remains convinced that Trump did nothing wrong. He and his wife had a heated exchange with Casten, after the lawmaker called Trump’s immigration policies “racist” and his claims about Biden “crackpot conspiracy theories.”

Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), another Democrat in a Republican-leaning district, has also been confronted at town halls back home.

According to a report from the Detroit News, Slotkin’s recent support of an impeachment inquiry has raised “a cacophony of applause, boos and mingled shouts of ‘Let her speak’ and ‘Fake news,'” at crowded gatherings.

A former Republican precinct delegate, Gwen Bliss, said she is disgruntled by Slotkin’s impeachment support.

“I hope she understands that when she puts herself forward as our representative that she represents us and, if we are this divided about this issue, I wouldn’t go forward with any of this,” she said.

Another resident, Bill Long, urged Slotkin to instead wait for more facts to emerge. He told her:

This is a serious matter that I think you guys are treating too lightly. Plus, frankly, if you guys go ahead and impeach him, we may never have this meeting again because you might be out of here and be replaced by a Republican. That would be sad because you seem like a bright young lady.

Already two Republicans have declared challenges to Slotkin since she came out in support of impeachment last month, State Board of Education member Nikki Snyder of Dexter and auto dealership general sales manager Mike Detmer.

Some Democrats are trying to avoid talking about the issue back home altogether.

There are plenty of these idiots out there pretending like their minds aren't already made up, and they "need to hear the evidence". Does anyone believe that there will not be 100% vote for impeachment from the democrats in both the house and senate? If you still believe that then I have a bit of farmland in the gulf of mexico I would love to talk to you about buying. Beach front property IN the gulf of mexico you can farm on!

Keep it up, Dems. Keep harping about impeachment, collusion, obstruction, abuse of power, etc.

You're guaranteeing Trump's re-election.
