For Immediate Release

April Freeman for Congress

January 7, 2015



(Fort Myers, FL) - Yesterday, on the first day of the 114th Congress, our Representative Curt Clawson voted for United States Senator Rand Paul to become Speaker of the House, causing the entire floor of the US House of Representatives to erupt in laughter.

Congressional Candidate April Freeman said, "I'm shocked at the lack of knowledge Mr. Clawson has for how our government works." She went on to say: "The new Congress was laughing at him, not with him –they were laughing at us. Southwest Florida once again became the joke of our nation."

Soon after the vote, yet another gaff by Rep. Curt Clawson, he released a statement back peddling by saying: it's time for change claiming unity with co-outsider Sen. Rand Paul.

Freeman had the following to say about the vote and Clawson's statement: "Clawson’s inability to grasp what's required to do his job has been evident from day one. He should not take the position lightly –it is not a joke."

Freeman continued, "The job as our "public servant" should instill somber and serious intent. Rep. Curt Clawson wasted his vote for Speaker –worse, he wasted OUR vote for Speaker of the House, and we need to hold him accountable."
