Congressman Heath Shuler’s Tuesday introduction of a bill requiring cabin separation for children under 13 who might be exposed to PG-13 and R rated in-flight movies has prompted a response from announced 11th District candidate, Carl Mumpower. Citing an appreciation for Shuler’s values, Mumpower did offer challenge to the Congressman’s priorities. “In flight movies are a pretty lofty target for congressional action” said Mumpower. “It might be better if we came down to earth and got more serious about open air drug markets that are kidnapping our children’s futures and leave airplanes to the friendly sky people and their customers.” Mumpower further noted that this is the kind of legislation for which Washington is famous. “Our nation’s leaders love to focus on secondary special interests while dodging the accountabilities of the real issues that affect real people in real ways.”
