“Ozark Indivisible, the activist group that has been pressing members of Congress from Arkansas on health care, immigration and other issues, reported on its Twitter account last night that people calling Sen. Tom Cotton’s office had received cease-and-desist letters…”
As we all know,
Q-Tip, er Beaker, er, Senator Cotton is a decorated ex-serviceman (Iraq and Afghanistan), a well-known hawk and neo-con, and a man who ain’t scared of no ghost!
But apparently he is a-feared of his constituents when they protest his actions, which as of late have consisting mostly of brown-nosing the orange ass. But I digress…
This letter is immediate notification that all communication must cease and desist immediately with all offices of US Senator Tom Cotton.
All other contact will be deemed harassment and will be reported to the United States Capitol Police.
The Office of US Senator Tom Cotton.
“UPDATE: Cotton’s office, in keeping with custom, refused to respond to our requests for information. But Michael Buckner of KTHV was able to get a seeming confirmationof the letter from Caroline Tabler, Cotton’s press aide.”
You’ll never guess what the aide said…
Tabler said that these letters are rare and only used “under extreme circumstances.”
“If an employee of Senator Cotton receives repeated communications that are harassing and vulgar, or any communication that contains a threat, our policy is to notify the U.S. Capitol Police’s Threat Assessment Section,” Tabler said.
Extreme circumstances seem to include anyone contacting his office.
