I can’t begrudge a guy when he’s got a big district and wants to hit some of those easy-to-miss, far-flung corners, but this seems a little fishy.
You better gas up the beater if you want to catch U.S. Rep. Leonard Boswell in a room full of constituents talking about health care this month.
Boswell, a Des Moines Democrat, is holding one health-care “listening post,” but it’s in Sigourney, 80 miles east of Des Moines.
In fairness, Boswell’s district spreads from the Des Moines area south and east, covering about a dozen counties in rural Iowa.
But Sigourney is about as far from the district’s population center as he can get.
By the way, it’s at the Sigourney Public Library at 2 p.m.
Hey, aren’t we supposed to send “fishy” developments to email@example.com ?
UPDATE: I guess Iowans should be thankful; Boswell could be one of those lawmakers you have to go all the way to the South Pole to find.
