Patrick Toomey

Patrick Joseph Toomey is an American businessman, politician, and the junior United States Senator from Pennsylvania, in office since 2011. A member of the Republican Party, Toomey served as a United States Representative for three terms, from 1999 to 2005, but he did not seek a fourth term in compliance with a term limits pledge he had made while running for office in 1998.Toomey is especially well known for hiding from his constituents and being unable to show his face at townhall meetings where the people he is supposed to represent simply ask him to do his job. He has had some "online town halls" that were announced with little warning and an attempt to save face but it didn't work to hide that he was scared of doing his job and facing the citizens of Pennsylvania.
