Linda Moore of the Memphis Commercial Appeal describes a townhall meeting held by U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Memphis. I want to point out one of the comments:

I attended and most of the people in that meeting were not residents of the Congressional District 9. I support Health Care Reform and I voted for Obama and Cohen to deliver results. Don’t be afraid, Mr. Cohen to vote the interest of your constituents.
Some of these people even came from Mississipi with little navy blue folders that had a Republican party emblem. The folder had instructions about what to ask and how to cause a disturbance. In 2009 we are still trying to overcome ignorance.
Some of the other commenters denied this was true. The article itself is the usual — mostly senior citizens terrified of what will happen when government takes over Medicare and terrified of euthanasia.
