When the “truth” and the “facts” come out they don’t like it. My current State Representative and current candidate for State Senate Dale Zorn (R) Monroe, not only removed my “truthful” comment on his facebook Ad he has “blocked” me from making any further comments! Hmmm…
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from government interference. I guess Mr. Zorn doesn’t believe in this amendment!
Mr. Zorn’s facebook Ad shows him sitting with a group of seniors listening to their concerns. I posted two comments showing where he in “fact” voted in favor of taxing their Pensions with legislative links showing as much. So while he claims to be concerned with the seniors well being he is not being truthful with them.
The lion’s share of the burden bestowed on retiree’s, seniors and lower income citizens with Mr. Zorn’s “yes” vote on this legislation falls directly on them. By his “yes” vote the wealthy and politically well connected businesses get tax breaks that effect them very much . Tax increases on retirement income from pensions is hurting retiree’s and seniors in a graying state still recovering from the recession.
The links below will clearly show that Dale Zorn does not represent his constituents but the political Party Bosses he answers to. By putting Party politics interest over the very citizens he is supposed to represent is unconscionable!

Forgive me if I restate your concern incorrectly: you made a comment on the Facebook post of a private person/their campaign ran with their privately generated money, and you are trying to call foul on first amendment grounds?
The first amendment protects you against actions of the government, not private individuals.
Indeed. However, I do believe the thrust of the matter is that Rep. Zorn, is a duplicitous bastard. You know, kinda like a Party chair, and its governor on 2A issues?
Anyhoo, good to see you, Mr. Hofmeister.
Never claimed the man was a saint. I'm inclined to believe the poster that he isn't a good Rep/candidate. I only refuted the claim that this is a first amendment issue. It isn't.
This actually isn't anything new.
Marty Knollenberg threw a hissy fit at a Troy Area Tea Party meeting a while back when someone reminded him about his votes on Snyder's pension and income tax hikes.
He tried to spin/deny his votes that night, even after being reminded that they are on public record.
