Does Col. Chris Gibson Know the Constitution?| The Post & Email � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

Rep. Chris Gibson received a Ph.D. in government from Cornell University and numerous medals and awards from his military service

(Sep. 21, 2011) — Col. Chris Gibson (Ret.) is serving his first term in the U.S. House of Representatives from the 20th District of New York, which encompasses ten counties in the eastern/central region of New York State. Gibson campaigned against then-incumbent Scott Murphy (D) on a platform of fiscal discipline, opposition to socialized health care, and reviving the sagging U.S. economy.

As a result of the 2010 census and redistricting, New York will lose two seats in the House effective in 2013. New Jersey and Pennsylvania each lost one seat as a result of the census.

Rep. Gibson retired from the U.S. Army as a colonel in 2010 after having served four combat tours in Iraq and on deployments to Haiti and Kosovo. He has been a lifelong resident of the town of Kinderhook, which was settled by the Dutch in 1750 and established as a town in 1788.

It was named after Mahican Indian children who were seen on the shores of the river by Henry Hudson, after whom the river was later named. Hudson was an English explorer whose trip was financed by the Dutch East India Company……….
