Special Election

It’s over now. Barber will hold the seat at least until the end of the year. Up to now I have held my tongue but now want to say the whole charade was a farce. Everyone of course felt empathy for Giffords. Our district had muddled along for over a year without her operating as an able bodied member of Congress. As I understand it the election cost the taxpayers over one million and there were at least 2.2 million spent in political advertising. What a waste of resources and the time taken by many during the process. I can only assume the Democratic leadership felt it would be to their advantage to do this as coupling in November might not have been good strategy. Jack B. Walters June 13, 2012
