Keeping a secret schedule and retreating to “friendly conservative territory,” obstructionist Senator Chuck Grassley yesterday tried — and failed — to duck accountability over his failure to do his job on the Supreme Court vacancy.
In a county where Grassley “won more than 80 percent of the vote in his last two elections,” he was, according to the Associated Press, nonetheless challenged by constituents for politicizing the Supreme Court nomination process and accused of “stalling” on the vacancy.
With just one public event today, and in a county where he won 92 percent of the vote in 2010, Grassley is no doubt hoping to avoid further questions over his obstructionism.
So far though, Grassley’s learned the hard way that even “friendly” constituents just want him to do his job.
