Sacramento’s CBS affiliate reports:
The boos and shouts of displeasure started during the introduction of Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) at his town hall meeting in Oroville. For nearly two hours, the crowd at the State Theater shouted down responses by the congressman. “I’m appalled,” said Linda Agee, a LaMalfa supporter. “It’s very enlightening and disturbing to experience this first hand,” said Denise Culley, who was attending her first town hall event.
“Do you yell at church?” LaMalfa asked the crowd at one point. That comment was met with intense booing and shouts of “Do you lie in church?” After fielding several questions and hearing comments on a range of issues, LaMalfa moved on to healthcare where he struggled through a PowerPoint presentation. His narration was hard to follow as shouts continued from the crowd. At one point the congressman walked off stage, returning a few moments later to finish his presentation amidst the noise.
