Harris Votes Against Post Office... then Abuses His Franking Priviledge!
Waste of $21,000 in franking indicates hypocrisy

On Monday, Rep. Andy Harris hosted an emergency preparedness meeting in Berlin. He advertised this meeting by sending out 60,000 self-serving postcards. Harris told us these cost 35 cents each. That's a total of $21,000. Only about 30-35 people attended. That means taxpayers spent about $650 to get each person to the meeting. A notice in the newspaper would not have cost anything, but Harris wouldn't have gotten his free election-year advertising.
