I received this video from someone who stayed around after last night's debate between Chris Shays and Jim Himes at Fairfield University. The Shays campaign has been handing out these long pamphlets that outline all his supposed accomplishments.
Shays was confronted by a man who ask him to sign his "manifesto" (which right away may have tipped Chris off that he wasn't very happy). The man, a Fairfield homeowner, had recently lost his job and asked how he was supposed to pay his mortgage?
Chris was long on bluster but short on helpful answers. Watch the video:
(I would have taped it myself, but I was forbidden from shooting any video at this public political event because apparently the woman in charge is either a complete fascist about their arbitrary rules, or she's a closet Chris Shays supporter who understands that the more people who see Jim Himes will vote for him. After arguing with her for some minutes I realized that the public interest isn't welcome at the very appropriately initialed "F.U.", so I left.)
