Has anyone seen this person?


CT News Junkie has a good artile about a group of people who have been looking for her lately.

First, it was the state Elections Enforcement Commission complaints, filed against Congresswoman Nancy Johnson (R-5th) by the chairman of the Torrington Democratic Town Committee, Daniel Pulliam. He accused Johnson’s campaign of improperly sending her federal money to local party organizations.

Then, Pulliam criticized Johnson for skipping Connecticut’s presentation in front of the Base Realignment and Closure Commission last week in Boston.


[...]

“Nancy Johnson Is Missing,” read the signs held by protesters, referring to Johnson’s apparent refusal to attend various forums on Social Security privatization held in the district.

“She’s clearly missing, and that’s our message- where’s Nancy?” said Phil Sherwood, a CCAG staffer, adding that his group’s corps of summer interns hope to knock on 1,000 doors a night throughout Johnson’s district.

Johnson spokesman Brian Schubert did not return a call for comment.

Could it be that there might (just might) be an interesting campaign in the 5th district after all.
