How To Make Congressman McHenry Fidget

Congressman Patrick McHenry's Republican primary opponent this year, Ken Fortenberry, showed up at a supposed "townhall" meeting the Congressman was holding, and just by acting like a citizen and asking questions, Fortenberry brought the meeting to an abrupt ending.

The published account is vague about which question McHenry refused to answer ... twice.

But this info volunteered by the Gaston Gazette reporter speaks volumes about McHenry's alleged "openness":
[Gaston County Commissioner Chad] Brown said the meeting was held on “somewhat short notice.” Fortenberry said he found out about the meeting late Wednesday night. The Gazette did not receive notification of the meeting but was tipped off by a source. No other media was present.
Sounds like a "townhall" that Virginia Foxx might engineer.
