Dear Janice,

Who the hell is Janice?

As your representaive in Congress, I believe it’s important to keep you informed on what’s happening in Washington.

Wrong – you are not my representative (note the spelling) in Congress. Your district is not even in my state.

I woud like to invite you to join the subscriber list for my email communications.

And I would (note the spelling) like to invite you to stop being a spammer.

While my offfice received many email communications, I believe the new software that is available to us will allow for more interactive and informed communication.

Spamming is very poor way to communicate, and office is spelled with only two f’s.


Timothy V. Johnson

Member of Congress ( 15-IL)
