The afternoon at Montclair State started with a seventy something year old man, possibly trying to physically accost John Murtha. Police intervened, taking the senoir citezen away. Witnesses said the man was screaming “LIAR-LIAR”, and identified himself as a former Marine.
The rest of the Town Hall style meeting went smoothly, with both representatives swapping places in front of the microphones.
As you can imagine Pascrell and Murtha fielded many questions about the war in Iraq. Their were also questions on Homeland Security, the Health problems of First Responders on 9-11, & the Dept. of Peace (from a fan of Kooch). Bill Pascrell said he didn’t think that the Dept. of Peace was going to see the light of day anytime soon, but commented that with a democratic majority it would be something he would like to see.
