Another congressional office lockout - New Mexico

Yes, NM-02's very own representative of the 1%, Steve Pearce.

At a time when Republican Congresspersons are under fire for cutting off town halls and canceling public events, New Mexico’s sole Tea Party Congressman just went one step further.

Thursday afternoon, over fifty people from around New Mexico’s Second Congressional District – some traveling from more than 100 miles away – came together at the Las Cruces field office of their Congressional Representative, Steve Pearce, during office hours to ask for a chance to talk to their Congressman face-to-face about his support for President Trump.

But the staff snuck out the back door then refused to open the front door or take phone calls. Then it turned into a thing.

It all started with an awkward Telephone Town Hall


The first caller was probably a shill, started off with a bunch of ass-kissing, then rattled on without asking a question.


Promptly at 1:30pm, just as constituents were arriving to meet, the office locked the door. ProgressNowNM’s local organizer Lucas Herndon caught Pearce’s outreach coordinator, Peter Ibarbo, slunk out the back door, jump in his truck and drive away.

Driving away, Ibarbo tells constituents that staff is in the office to meet with those gathering. BUT… they found the doors locked and staff refused to answer the phone.


Here's the rest, with videos:

1. K&R - we need to keep documenting their actions

Keep a record of their cowardliness, and disdain for democratic government.

Fuck these shills, they're bought by the dozen like cheap socks.

Welcome to DU BTW
