Portland, Maine resident Erik Mercer ran into his one of his Senators, Susan Collins, at the airport in D.C. and politely inquired if he could ask her a few questions – which she refused to answer forthrightly.
It probably would have ended there but as they were boarding their flight, Erik overheard Collins tell another passenger that a constituent had just been rude to her.
So Erik pulled a boss move.
Citizen activism. It’s time to refuse to accept silence from our elected officials. Let’s force them all to commit on these issues. https://t.co/4YTObWUxSM

I am sure Sen. Collins finds the ad to be very….concerning.
And probably rude.
Thanks from all of us, Mr. Mercer!
