I believe constituents and citizens need to be aware of any inappropriate conduct of their elected officials. My intent is not to engage in some silly tit-for-tat feud However, Michigan citizens have a right to expect that their Senators conduct themselves in a manner befitting their office.
Rick Jones is at it again. Somebody needs to put his computer in a lock box
Unbelievably, I received this Facebook e-mail message (below) from the Senator
Evidently Rick Jones has never heard of a “Screenshot”
Rick Jones took his his computer and e-mailed me on Facebook because he was feeling the displeasure from his constituents (fortunately I am not one) and others from a post I did HERE about the passing of SB 693(setting up an Obama Care Insurance Exchange in Michigan) and those who voted “Yes.” including Jones. I also made note of his now infamous comment made on the Senate floor that he had to “plug his nose and vote for the bill”
Sending a harassing and bullying e-mail is disgraceful behavior from a Senator and violates CHAPTER I – SECTION 3 LEGISLATIVE CONDUCT AND ETHICS
1.301 LEGISLATIVE CONDUCT of the Michigan Legislative Handbook & Directory states:
Each Senator shall conduct himself or herself to justify the confidence placed in him or her by the people and shall, by personal example and admonition to colleagues, maintain the integrity and responsibility of his or her office.
This incident is particularly disconcerting to women or anyone who has ever been the victim of harassment.
In addtion, the fact that he initiated contact with me, several times and then continued, escalating to harassing, and factious insults could rise to the level of cyberstalking. Considering that Rick Jones was a sheriff before starting a new career in politics makes his behavior even more shocking. His constituents and Michigan deserve better.
