"paid protestors"

It's funny how mad I get all over again when I remember Cory Gardner dissing me and everyone else who has been calling him as paid, out-of-state protestors. When Trump does it, I just think, he's delusional, that's what happens when you lie to yourself enough; but from Gardner it feels personal. The Left Hand of Darkness gave me a word for it: how dare you say I have no shifgrethor?

I hope he keeps saying it, and I hope lots of people respond like me: you want evidence that we live here, and we vote? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

Today's call: My name, where I live, "As the mother of a son with asthma, as a volunteer at the Rocky Mountain Raptor Center, and as a person who lives here on the Front Range and has seen enough brown clouds for one lifetime, I would like to know how Senator Gardner intends to vote on the repeal of the BLM's Methane and Natural Gas Waste Prevention Rule." Staffer said he did not think Senator Gardner had made a public statement, but he would be happy to pass along my concerns. "I would also like to know how Senator Gardner intends to vote on the repeal of the BLM's Planning 2.0 rule." Again, staffer did not think Gardner had made a public statement, but would be happy to pass along my concerns. Just to be sure, "I want him to vote NO on repealing both of those."
