Sandbagging Corrine Brown



Congresswoman Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville, doesn't have to sweat re-election much but a Republican opponent, Dean Black, is trying hard to get her attention. Today he showed up outside Brown's house with a dump truck full of sandbags.

The stunt stems from a controversy two years ago when Brown got the city of Jacksonville to deliver sandbags to protect her house against rising floodwaters. "It's time to sandbag Ms. Brown," says Black, who is either stronger than he appears or those bags are filled with paper, not sand.
