On Wednesday, October 02, Randy Neugebauer, a United States Representative (R-TX), rudely and publicly rebuked a U.S. Park Service Ranger for carrying out orders to close the World War II National Memorial, run by the NPS in Washington, DC. The Texas Representative proved a strong lack of understanding about how public law and the government's reach into every aspect of our society work by incorrectly interfering in the duties of his fellow public employee. We are asking for Rep. Neugebauer to correct his misstep and publicly apologize to the U.S. Park Service Ranger for his obtuse and disrespectful comments.#apologizerandy
"How do you look at them and... deny them access?" said Neugebauer.
"It's difficult," responded the Park Service employee.
"Well, it should be difficult," replied the congressman, who was carrying a small American flag in his breast pocket.
"It is difficult," responded the Park Service employee. "I'm sorry, sir."
"The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves," the congressman said.
"I'm not ashamed," replied the ranger.
