So it turns out that contrary to prior reports, Rep. John Culberson is willing to participate in a debate. He's just not willing to participate in a debate that involves his opponent, Jim Henley. The following is an email from Culberson's office:
The Houston Club presents Congressman John Culberson (District Seven) U.S. House of Representatives and Charles C. Foster, President of Tindall & Foster, P.C. debate immigration issues so important to our city, region, and nation: The Rio Grande Great Wall; Guest Workers; Amnesty; Stiffer Criminal Penalties on Illegals and Employers; Do Nothing.
The non-members and the general public are invited to the luncheon and debate on Monday, October 2, 2006 at 11:30 am - 1:30 pm. $37.00 Reservations: 713-229-2215.
Mr. Foster heads the Immigration Law Section of his firm, has served as a principal advisor to President George W. Bush on U. S. immigration policy and is past National President of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. The views of the nationally respected attorney differ sharply from those of Congressman Culberson.

Sadly, I will not be able to make this event. But I will be glad to purchase an adult beverage of your choosing to anyone who does attend and manages to ask Rep. Culberson why this is an acceptable forum for him to debate but Rice University against Jim Henley is not. Let me know what happens.Posted by Charles Kuffner on September 30, 2006 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
