It’s a good thing I can take a joke …
FL Republican Senator LeMieux’s ridiculous “Mailbox Full” rejections of my input on issues were replaced by FL Republican Senator Rubio’s equally ridiculous “Interim Response” acceptances of my input. For comparison purposes, FL Democractic Sen. Nelson responds to the issues directly via email, although evasively and belatedly (he’s a Blue Dog and a Family member, after all), and FL Democratic Rep. Hastings responds via snail mail and to the point (he’s not a Blue Dog or a Family member, after all).
If memory serves, Rubio blocked my email address after one contact regarding Florida’s conviction corruption while he served in the FL Legislature.
