We had an interview with WICU TV 12 today. WICU/WSEE/Lilly Broadcasting has been very fair to us treating us the same as the other candidates. Highly appreciated.
We hung around out here till our interview.
This was an interview with all three of the candidates in the 16th Congressional District race for the WICU/WSEE public affairs program "The Insider", conducted on Wednesday morning, October 24.
Per prior agreement, each of the three candidates on the ballot in the upcoming election had about a 7:30 (7 minutes 30 secs) one on one interview with Lisa Adams, host of the program.
Lisa Adams interviewed Ebert Beeman about the campaign, and issues affecting the voters of the 16th District.
The program will air at:
We had everything laid out and ready to go.
We passed out our fliers to as many people as we could.
People were happy to hear what we had to say and we were happy to meet them.
We talked to as many people as we could. Even if they couldn't talk to us at the time, many people came and talked to us later.
People were glad to be offered another choice.
People actually wanted to talk to us. Guess they knew we weren't politics as usual.
We had the opportunity the record a segment for CATV's Access to the Candidates program.
This is the inside of the studio. That round table is where we were recorded at.

Access to the Candidates Video.
Per FEC regulations, we had to have the complaint notarized. Unlike some people, WE follow FEC regulations.
Bill signs the complaint to the FEC reporting the illegal, in-kind contributions to the old party campaigns under the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 .

We then mailed the complaint to the FEC at the U S Post Office on 14th and State Streets in Erie.
The sponsors could keep him out, but they couldn't keep Bill down!
People didn't just take the Beeman Campaigns fliers, they read them.
So many people were taking Bill's fliers, he had trouble keeping up.
They sent out campus cops to intimidate the Beeman campaign, but they were undaunted.
They could break the law and pervent Bill from speaking at the debate but he was actually they longer than the other candidates were.
