A local football coach is sleeping outside Congressman Zack Space’s Zanesville Office and says he won’t leave until Space holds a public meeting.
Dave Daubenmire of Pass The Salt Ministries and coach at Fairfield Christian Academy in Lancaster, says he’s wants Congressman Space to hold a meeting in Licking, Knox or Muskingum County so that his constituents of the 18th district can ask questions about his policies.
“They are putting a burden of debt upon our grandchildren, kids that aren’t even born yet and I think if Zack Space is going to represent the people of the 18th district he ought to have the courage to tell us why they’re doing it, what his policies are and where he stands so we can figure out if he is for us or against us,” says Daubenmire.
Congressman Space’s chief of staff Stuart Chapman says that in the midst of outreach to tens of thousands of people this month the Congressman went out of his way to meet with Daubenmire, but he says Daubenmire does not want a meeting he just wants to grandstand.
Coach Dave and is not affiliated with any political party or organization but is merely exercising his God-given right to free expression. His protesting was filmed by FOX NEWS NATIONAL and will be shown Friday from 6-7 EST on FOX REPORT with Brett Baier.
Dave Daubenmire, a veteran 25 year high school football coach, was spurred to action when attacked and eventually sued by the ACLU in the late 1990’s for alledgedly mixing prayer with his coaching. After a two year battle for his 1st amend-ment rights and a determination to not back down, the ACLU relented and offered coach an out of court settlement.
