Republican Renee Ellmers Curses At & Berates Anti-Amnesty Constituent
When Renee Ellmers ran for Congress in 2010, I personally took her around and introduced her to conservative bloggers. Back then, she loved the Tea Party, adored grassroots conservatives, and was opposed to amnesty. Now after four years in D.C., she has turned into Lindsey Graham in a dress.
On Friday, March 21, Ron Woodard of NC Listen reported on a meeting he had with Renee Ellmers on the topic of immigration and amnesty. He claimed he had exited the meeting appalled both by her positions and by her behavior.
One of the constituents attending the meeting recorded the conversation.
The Randolph Tea Party posted the clips online, and exclusively forwarded the links to PJ Media. Four clips of the meeting are embedded below.
At one point, Ellmers says of Woodard: “You don’t have any damn facts.”
Ellmers claims he is stereotyping, and constantly interrupts him. This conduct occurred after she had inconvenienced the group by changing locations at the last minute, refused to let all of the attendees into her office, and insisted she had to be leaving shortly.
Like Marco Rubio, whom I’m also extremely disappointed in for lying about amnesty, Renee Ellmers betrayed the people who put her in office. However, unlike Rubio, Ellmers has gotten squishier on other issues as well and has been arrogant and nasty towards the people who helped put her in office. See, back in 2010, when she was fighting an uphill battle against an entrenched Democrat incumbent, the establishment wasn’t very interested in helping her. So she desperately needed help from the grassroots and she got it. Now that Ellmers is an incumbent in a safe district, the establishment loves her and she has become dishonest, arrogant and nasty towards grassroots conservatives.
What a disappointment Renee Ellmers turned out to be.
PS: She does have a primary opponent named Frank Roche who could use your support.
For a couple election cycles, Republicans have clearly believed “the more moderate the better”. The result has been that the
