Are You Proud of our Congresswoman Ellmers?

Emphatically, I say,  HECK NO!  We are the ones who put her there.  And now look how she treats NC citizens!  We don't want amnesty.  The country doesn't want amnesty.  What the heck is she thinking?  This isn't appropriate behavior.   She's calling people who voted her in office "racists".  OMG!

If memory serves me correctly, didn't she defeat someone who berated a couple of college students on the streets of DC? 

Ellmers Berates Constituents for Opposing Amnesty: 'You Don't Have Any Damn Facts!'

Link to youtube video where you can hear her arguing:

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn't have “any damn facts.”

“You're telling me what people have told you? You don't have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don't post job openings in that region.

“Facts – numbers. Facts – documents,” Ellmers lectured, her voice dripping with disdain. She went on to attribute the activist's views to “resentment...because of a personal issue that you experienced,” later referring to a local company that had laid off workers. “I know where your hatred and vitriol is coming from,” she added.

The incident is the second time in a little more than a week that Ellmers has suffered an embarrassing public outburst over the immigration issue – the first coming March 13 in an interview with nationally syndicated radio host Laura Ingraham, whom Ellmers called “ignorant” and “small-minded.” She also ran into trouble when she claimed to have the same position on the issue as Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), only to have Lee's communications director publicly distance his boss from Ellmers' position.
