A Senator’s “Timely” Response

Soon after President Obama was elected, I wrote to my state representatives seeking tickets for the historic inauguration.


Well, take a look at what I received today from Senator Specter. Exactly two months after the event, I get my “reply.”


Note to the Senator – have an aid check your auto response system, it’s broken!
