Public pressure finally forces Steele to accept debate with Dingell
Like Republican Gubernatorial nominee Rick “Chief Executive Outsourcer” Snyder, public pressure has finally gotten to Rob Steele, the teabagger Republican Congressional candidate for the 15th District, and he has reluctantly agreed to one debate with the dean of the U.S. House Rep. John Dingell, D-Dearborn.
Even though Dingell has asked for debates and has accepted every opportunity to speak at forums since Steele won the primary election, Steele has done nothing but posture; until now. In fact, Dingell sent Steele a congratulatory letter when he won the GOP primary that also asked for as many debate as possible, but Steele’s response was to stall and falsely accuse Dingell of not wanting to debate.
In a press release designed to spin the truth, Steele has agreed to a one hour debate beginning at 6:30 p.m. on October 20 at the La-Z-Boy Center Meyer Theater on the campus of Monroe County Community College, 1555 S. Raisinville Rd., according to the press release by the Steele campaign.
That’s the only debate Steele has agreed to, and as he continues to duck debates, he continues to lie and say Dingell is the one ducking debates.
