Iowans are asking: Where is Chuck Grassley?

Why Courts Matter Iowa asks Iowans to call the ‘Where is Chuck’ hotline at (515) 421-8997 due to Senator Grassley’s lack of events being held during the state work period, as well as rumors of numerous unpublicized private events.

The Why Courts Matter Iowa coalition today asked Iowans to aid and assist in finding the whereabouts of Senator Chuck Grassley. The coalition’s request for Iowans to call the ‘Where is Chuck’ hotline at 515-421-8997 is in reaction to the zero public events being held by the Senator during the first week of his state work period, the unusually low total of just 3 events in his 15 days working in the state, and widespread rumors of unpublicized events being held by the Senator in order to avoid his constituents.

“This week the Senator known for the ‘full Grassley’ appears to be running on empty,” said Matt Sinovic, executive director of Progress Iowa and Why Courts Iowa coalition member. “It’s disappointing that Senator Grassley is holding so few public events, instead choosing to have private gatherings and closed-door meetings. Iowans are frustrated with his obstruction of the Supreme Court, but he has always met us face to face to discuss the issues of the day, instead of playing hide and go seek.”

“We are calling on all Iowans to assist us in locating Senator Grassley, and inform us of any of his private events,” said Chris Schwartz, state director of Americans for Democratic Action Iowa and Why Courts Matter Iowa coalition member. “Iowans have a right to speak with their Senator, and we will publicize the details of any event we discover and confirm through our network across the state. We encourage Iowans of all political parties to join us in this effort, as responsiveness to constituents should not be a partisan issue.”

Why Courts Matter Iowa has established a ‘Where is Chuck’ hotline at 515-421-8997 for Iowans to call and relay details of any private events the Senator is holding during his state work period, as well as an email address: whereischuck@whycourtsmatteriowa.org.
