In order to get to the heart of Castle's feelings about the Dobrich intimidation case, I called his Wilmington office at (302) 428-1902. Here is a rough transcript. Dave:
Congressman Castle'’s office this is Dave. Me:
Hi Dave, this is Jason calling from "delaweareliberal". Does Congressman Castle have a statement for the press on the Dobrich family being driven out of Indian River School district by the intimidation tactics of the "“Stop The ACLU” Coalition"? Dave:
He does not have an official statement on it right now, if he makes one I will be happy to call you back with it. What is your phone number? Me:
Thanks. It is (302) XXX-XXXX
It turns out it was not just one state legislator who spoke out in favor of the Dobrich intimidation,
five of them did: We commend the Indian River Board of Education for maintaining its tradition of prayer. This long-standing practice is a tribute to our historical heritage and a reminder to our elected officials that even beyond their own constituencies, there is a power that will hold them accountable for consequences of their actions.- State Reps. John Atkins, Joe Booth, Ben Ewing, Gerald Hocker and Biff Lee
These elected officials were basically giving the green light to the people in Sussex who went on to make the death threats that forced the Dobrich family out.
Nothing from Castle yet.
