Kaptur 3 movie screenings 0 real town halls

Marcy makes it to another movie screening of Capitalism, but we are still waiting for a town hall. This puts her at least 3 screenings (NY, Detroit, D.C.) and 0 town halls.
===
Prior to his film’s screening at the AFI Theatre in Silver Spring Monday night, Moore sat down with POLITICO. He told us, “I’ve had more requests from members of Congress to get a copy of the film. … If millions of people in this country go to see this movie, [Congress] wants to know what [the public’s] really looking at, especially if it affects them.”

Does this make you shudder?

What is more disturbing about this statement Michael Moore said in an interview with LatinoReview.com?
===
I really hope that this movie just inspires and stimulates people to do any number of things that they can do, starting with don't leave your home because they can't produce the mortgage. I'm going to have a thing on my website with Marcy Kaptur, and by the way, that Congresswoman from Toledo, Ohio, when Obama's eight years are up can we just make her the first female president in the United States.

United States Owes Poland An Apology! Congresswoman Kaptur

Kaptur talks about her new friend's video (so does her friend)

Kaptur celebrates "Capitalism"

The "Capitalism" movie afterparty that Marcy attended as a guest of Michael Moore raised the eyebrows and even temper of some of the participants. NBC New York reports the irony of holding the afterparty in the "Esquire's swanky Soho show house"

The Wall Street Journal noted the irony of the NY premier at the Lincoln Center.

Watchdog group does not include Kaptur on "Murtha Method" list

Marcy Kaptur was excluded from the Center for Public Integrity's list of the most corrupt using Murtha' method of having former staffers request earmarks for clients. I asked CPI why this was the case and they confirmed that it was because they were specifically looking for former staffers requeswting and getting earmarks.

Dear John Letter to Ms. Kaptur

Dear Congreeswoman Kaptur,

LATTA STATEMENT REGARDING PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS TO CONGRESS

“During the August district work period, I attended numerous meetings across the Fifth District and met with hundreds of constituents who made it clear that they are unhappy with the way Congress is conducting the current health care debate. Democrat Congressional leadership continues to rush health care legislation through both chambers, with no real explanation.

District residents present Kaptur's office with 900 petitions demanding a no vote on healthcare

Residents demand she resign if she supports reform bill.

Bob Latta makes the YouTube blog answering questions on healthcare

This was posted on 8/22 but worth mentioning. Latta got the chance to answer questions on healthcare from Internet users in the following video, which was moderated by YouTube. The official YouTube blog is a major blog with Feedburner reporting over 2 million readers. This is some great exposure for Latta.

Kaptur: Give me liberty or give me death - Is this a joke?

I can not believe Marcy is saying that squandering our money is a problem, Ms. 3 Billion Dollar Woman. She says our financial dependence on foreign governments concerns her, but she is a part of the problem. Does she actually hear the words coming out of her mouth? This is unbelievable. What a hypocrite. What not a perfect example of the problems with Washington and how we have just some of the biggest idiots there. Oh I am complaining about our reliance on foreign governments for money, but oh how are we going to pay for my 3 billion dollar bribe? How can a Congresswoman stand here and actually have the brains to say this when she is a part of the problem? They are all brainless-brainless indeed. Welcome to the United States and we put these people here. God help us.

As Ethics Issues Swirl, the House Finally Has the Right Process

Last week, the Washington Post had a story discussing potential conflicts of interest of the members of the House ethics committee over its investigation of alleged earmark irregularities linked to the lobbying firm PMA Group. PMA has close ties to a number of Members of Congress, including the powerful chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.). It turns out that the 10 members of the ethics panel have requested a number of earmarks from Murtha’s subcommittee.

Ethics and Appropriations Make Strange Bedfellows

Members of the House ethics committee, who are investigating a pattern of lawmakers steering federal funds to generous defense contractors, have just had their own pet military projects approved by the same committee whose activities they are probing.

PMA Probe Moves Quietly

4 Aug 2009 // Nearly two months after the House ethics committee acknowledged it is investigating lawmakers’ ties to the PMA Group — a statement made in the wake of demands for public accountability — little is known about the inquiry because the panel is using a process that limits the amount of information it has to release.

Although the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct, commonly known as the ethics committee, announced in mid-June that its leaders had approved a “review of certain, specific allegations,” it has not named lawmakers or even which House rules it is examining.
