My neighbors in the 4th District....this is our current Representative in Congress. I hope you're half as embarrassed as I am over this debacle. Please vote for Dan Sebring on Tuesday...we need someone in DC that isn't a walking, talking, singing, screaming joke. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWg5PXnYeEU
