What's wrong with this picture?
Project Vote Smart reports that New York Congressman John Hall, first elected in 2006 and up for re-election in November, 2010, represented the interests of the Humane Society of the United States 100% of the time in 2007 and 2008.
The above photo was taken in 2009, as Hall accepted his "Humane Advocate" award from Wayne Pacelle, HSUS CEO and President.
No photos from the 2010 award presentations ?
HumaneWatch.org reports that Hall was one of the few elected representatives from across the country to show up in person to collect his award this year. He was the only New York "honoree" who didn't have a pressing prior engagement that day.
Oddly enough, we can't find this year's photo.
Maybe rumors finally reach Hall of HSUS's involvement in a RICO suit, a grassroots campaign to yank their charitable, tax-exempt status, and indications that HSUS hoodwinks compassionate donors by appropriating money given to feed and shelter animals in crisis.
We are pleased that Congressman Hall's fellow award winners didn't show. But as for the Congressman? We think it's time to . . .
Show Congressman Hall a little love
The Empire State Animal Alliance believes that Congressman Hall could use a little guidance from his constituents.
Something is clearly amiss, and the fall election season is coming up soon.
Tell Congressman Hall you're wondering why he accepts awards from someone who "doesn't want to see another cat or dog born", and has "no problem with the extinction of domestic animals."
and then. . .
Take our poll !
We'll send Congressman Hall the results. We think he might be in for a surprise.
