Rep. Melissa Bean Scolds Debate Watcher Over Pledge of Allegiance


Rep. Melissa Bean (D, Illinois-8) finally graces the presence of her audience (non-paying, this time) on October 20th for an open, in-person debate with her Republican opponent, Joe Walsh. When an audience member politely proposes (after even raising his hand in deference to our incumbent school marm) that the Pledge of Allegiance be voluntarily recited by audience members, she flatly refuses the request.

As you can probably guess, that didn’t go over well with the audience, which nearly unanimously decides to correct her perception of who works for who. Campaign self-destruction on the part of Rep. Bean ensues.

Shocker: IL-08 Pledge-hater also Organizing for America drone.
