Heh. Louie Gohmert of the Piney Woods, Texas-A Shared Congressman for DC

1 April 2007 at 5:13:52 PM

Made me laugh. During the debates about representation in Congress for District of Columbia residents, Gohmert argued against it...

saying all 535 members of Congress have the city's well-being at heart.

Washington is "the only city ... that every senator and every member of Congress has a vested interest in seeing that it works properly, that water works, sewer works," Gohmert said during the recent House debate over D.C. voting rights.

So DC residents took him at his word.

Can someone ask Louie G. if he supports removing the carpet from the Metro trains? He must have a position on this," a writer opined on DCist.com.

Wrote another: "Telephone our new D.C. Congressman, Louie Gohmert, about water, sewer, parking, schools, kids with guns, loud neighbors, etc."

One D.C. resident took it upon himself to thank Gohmert's real constituents back in East Texas.

"We who live in the District of Columbia appreciate your generosity in sharing your congressman, Louie Gohmert, with us," Mike Licht wrote in a letter to the editor published in the Panola Watchman. "The D.C. population is 572,059, a bit smaller than the whole population of the 1st Congressional District, but with Mr. Gohmert's energy and urban expertise, I'm sure your requests to his office will be answered as promptly as ever."
