Disappointed constituent

I am dismayed to see that our newly elected Congressman, Jeff Denham upon reaching Washington D.C. immediately organized an extravagant party. He raised $85,000 and spent $80,000 of it on this over the top celebration of himself. This seems way out of touch with the economic situation experienced by the people in his home district. Does he think people back home won’t figure out what he is doing? He put out his hand to the lobbyists, took their money and had a party. One Indian group gave him $50,000 and another gave him $25,000. Does Jeff think we can’t figure out what that is all about? From day one he should have been working 24/7 to bring jobs to our district not a party for himself.Mr. Denham, I am very disappointed in your actions.
