I am a constituent of the 2nd district (at least until 2013.) I called Ellmers' office at the end of May and was treated horribly by two male interns who answered the phone. One accused me of being rude and insulting the representative and would need to end the call because I had nothing constructive to say. The next day another one started debating with me about my opinions, raising his voice with me, insulting and laughing at me for anything I said. He even accused me of not believing in the freedom of religion.
What kind of mind games are they playing with the constituents especially if they oppose what the representative is doing?
This is an all-too-familiar experience for citizens who have to deal with the people who staff offices of teabaggers like Renee Ellmers.
Note 1. If you are a staff member in a Congressional office, listen up: No citizen gives a flip what you personally think about anything. We are not calling to talk to you. In fact, you are nothing but a highly paid secretary whose only job is to answer the damn phone and communicate exactly what we say to your boss. You may never express your personal views and you may NEVER argue with a citizen.
Note 2. Congresswoman Ellmers, you need to fire the jerks you have staffing your offices. This is the sixth time I've heard such complaints from people in your district, having also experienced them myself. For the record, you and your staff work for everyone in your district, not just those who happen to agree with your reckless policies.
