So what is wrong with this invitiation?
Still not sure? Check out Congressman Rohrabacher’s Official Congressional Website HERE.
The email uses the same banner as his official website, including the photos and Congressional Seal. None of these materials may be used for political purposes. Further down in the actual email, you will find a direct link to the official website. Clearly the disclaimer that the invitation is not printed at government expense requires a bit of creative liscense. The banner and photos on Rohrabacher’s official website were most certainly paid for with government funds.
But I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised at his failure to hold up to that promise of “not printed at government expense.” When Rohrabacher ran for Congress 22 years ago he ran on a platform of term limits. I believe he said he would only serve 6 years. But then again, it’s okay to do it if you’re a Republican.
