It turns that while protesters amassed outside the offices of freshman Republican U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson in Kinderhook and Saratoga on February 24, the congressman himself was traveling overseas with a congressional delegation visiting troops and meeting with military leaders. The Glens Falls Post-Star has a story based on a Gibson press release about how the delegation left Iraq on Thursday, Feb. 24, and was traveling to an unspecified other foreign country, with the locations and itinerary for the remainder of the trip not being released "to protect security," according to Stephanie Valle, the congressman's spokeswoman. Gibson serves on the House Armed Services Committee and was traveling with Reps. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., Madeleine Bordallo, D-Guam, and Mo Brooks, R-Ala.
