WASHINGTON (WJLA) -- Many D.C. residents, particularly those who desire autonomy, haven't been too happy lately with Republican congressman Andy Harris of Maryland.
Harris, who represents Ocean City and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, recently introduced legislation to block the District's new marijuana decriminalization law. He sparred with city leaders on Twitter, telling them he was a doctor and that marijuana is a harmful drug.
But NewsChannel 8's NewsTalk host and D.C. resident Bruce DePuyt has found a new point of contention with Harris and took to Twitter on Friday to share it. As a result, Harris shouldn't be surprised if his Congressional office gets inundated with calls from D.C. residents complaining about potholes.
Md. Rep. Andy Harris tells WAMU that Congress is DC's local legislature. If you have a potpole or other problem, his number is 202-225-5311.— Bruce DePuyt (@News8NewsTalk) July 11, 2014
