McHenry’s mysterious town hall

This story in the Gaston Gazette about Thursday’s town hall meeting held by U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry makes you wonder about a lot of things, like what was the question that McHenry refused to answer twice that forced the meeting to end?

Then there is this at the end of the story.

Brown said the meeting was held on “somewhat short notice.” Fortenberry said he found out about the meeting late Wednesday night. The Gazette did not receive notification of the meeting but was tipped off by a source. No other media was present.

The local paper didn’t receive a notice but was tipped off by a source? Is it really a town hall meeting if the media and the public don’t know about it?

    Anyone who has witnessed McHenry’s shenanigans during live hearings, especially when Elizabeth Warren was on the Hill, knows he is a childish tool.

    How can one justify not being willing to testify to Congress? McHenry was correct on this one. Warren is a liberal Democrat that pretends to care about cause but not the people.
