Rep Melissa Bean (D) Il-8, thinks that her constituents are to be cowered into silence when she sees fit.
Hat Tip to Riehl World View
After a closed-door, pre-event meeting between Rep Melissa Bean (D) Il-8 and staff of the Round Lake Area Public Library, a man alleged to be the hulking head of library security repeatedly took an intimidating stance, standing over questioners who raised controversial issues. Other library management attempted to dissuade an attendee from video taping what was purportedly a public townhall event. Rather than stop the intimidation, Bean appeared rather pleased with it based upon her smiling acknowledgment. Video below.
Rep. Melissa Bean has a troubling history involving townhalls. She’s also one of a few Democrats uninterested in disbursing Charlie Rangel cash to charity, as other Dems have done. Now, via video below and at Gateway Pundit, she seems to be resorting to intimidation and censorship to prevent questions from being asked at alleged public townhall events.

I would have stood up and told that thug he has one of two options: get out of my face or lose some teeth.
I called the Library Director and left a message. I wanted to know if it was standard procedure for the library to use thugs to intimidate constituents during TownHall meetings. I also said that Bean needs to understand that she works for her constituents, not the other way around.
If I get response, I’ll post it here.
