Time to update your email contact list. Speaker of the House John Boehner has established a direct e-mail address. It’s SpeakerBoehner@mail.house.gov.

News of Boehner’s new e-mail address is noteworthy because most members of Congress merely have web forms through which to “e-mail” a congressman.

Roll Call, reporting on the story, noted that congressmen typically block web form-submitted e-mails from outside of their districts.

Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a direct e-mail address five years ago. Roll Call quoted Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill speculating that the popularity of Pelosi’s e-mail account inspired the new Boehner address.

This is quite good, a Speaker releasing his direct Email to the public… Now this is what I consider responsible governance.
Discuss.

I call it sleight of hand
dummy post office boxes are still thriving.

Dialog forms are Bullish, Direct Email is better.
