A Vietnam veteran in Wisconsin will have to wait until next year to find out if Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) supports raising the minimum wage, after the Tea Party Congressman shut his door and drove away from the question.
Yesterday, in video flagged by CREDO SuperPAC, a constituent approached Duffy outside a meeting in Wausau and attempted to ask him a question about the minimum wage. Duffy told the man he’s already held his single yearly town hall, got in his car, shut his door, and drove away, leaving the veteran tried to shout his question through the car’s rolled up window.
