Mississippi Activists Denied Access to Senator’s Office

On Tuesday, August 19th, we went to Senator Thad Cochran’s office here in Jackson, Mississippi to deliver letters from grassroots activists. As his constituents, we wanted to make it clear that we DO NOT support the re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank. The government wastes millions of dollars in crony capitalism and flying executives around the world. A seemingly simple statement from voters to their representative. But, to our surprise, Sen. Cochran’s staff refused us access to our very own Senator’s office to deliver these letters. Check out the photo gallery of our protest.
