Is McMorris Rodgers listening?

What do we do when our congresswoman blocks us from communicating with her? On the day Cathy McMorris Rodgers appeared on “Meet the Press” a few weeks ago, she also blocked me from commenting on Facebook. I sent her an email asking her why. No response. I called her office and was told they’d return the call. I’ve never heard back.

I wrote a letter to The Spokesman-Review that wasn’t published. What does a constituent do when her representative in Congress refuses to even acknowledge a constituent’s existence and right to communicate with her? Who is one to turn to when Cathy McMorris Rodgers is your representative and appears to want you to just shut up?

There is my vote in November, but it’s just one vote. Does anybody else want her to hear them? Is she listening?
