State Rep. Randy Boehning, a Fargo Republican, is hard to get in touch with.
When we contacted him for a story about his illiterate political rants a few months ago, he never responded to our voicemail. More recently, he ignored a request for comment from KVLY-TV about his suggestion that people were “paid” to cause a ruckus at Congressman Kevin Cramer’s town hall meeting in Fargo last week.
“I wonder how many were bought and paid for by Obama’s new organization?” Boehning wrote on Facebook in response to a video of the event.
As it turns out, if you want a response from Boehning, simply pretend to have some evidence proving his conspiracy.
That’s exactly what Zac Echola did on Monday. He sent Boehning the following intentionally-typo-ridden email, referring to Cramer’s town hall meeting, which was held at Beans Coffee House and was organized by a group called Indivisible FM:
