Congressman Andy Harris’s office got a lot of complaints yesterday but not from the usual constituents.

These were DC residents who were angry with the Eastern Shore Republican for trying to block the decriminalization of marijuana that went into effect in the District last week.

Barbara Helmick who is a member of DC vote that organized the faux constituent service day stood outside Harris’s office in Washington yesterday.

She said that if the Eastern Shore Republican was so interested in the District he should be cleaning up the streets, helping with the homeless and getting more affordable housing in the nation’s capital.
