More on Hostettler

Congressman Hostettler has an odd way of showing that he cares. Of course, politician visits to disaster areas are largely symbolic, but I do not really think a visit by the Congressman would have hampered the relief effort.

Hostettler won't view damage

WASHINGTON - Rep. John Hostettler has decided not to tour any of the tornado destruction this weekend when he's back in the district.

"He doesn't want to interfere," said his spokesman Matthew Faraci. "He is very adamant.

"Our district staff members are literally in the field trying to do the best they can to assist FEMA. From Mr. Hostettler's perspective, he does not want to get in the way of state and local officials doing their job."
