Andy Harris: May hate pot but likes his whine

Rep. Andy Harris is an embarrassment to Maryland ("Pot protesters confront Rep. Harris: Congressman says his wrist was bruised during the incident at his Washington office,” Oct. 3). Two members of Maryland Marijuana Justice tried to talk with him. "He ran past them and slammed the door in their face. He got on the other side of the door and was pushing the door shut, " said Adam Eldinger, a legalization advocate. One protester had her foot slammed in the door, while poor Andy bruised his wrist pushing to close the door on them.

Again and again, Mr. Harris has shown exactly what he is — a spoiled, entitled white male — and it is a mystery to me why he was ever elected. Do you all remember how he whined on the first day he arrived in Congress about not getting the very good health coverage given to members? Has he whined for better health coverage for everyone else in Maryland? He is just so pathetic. He is a terrible representative of our state.
