North Carolina Congressman Robert Pittenger (R-Charlotte) will hold a "tele-town hall" meeting tonight (Thursday) at 6:30 p.m., meaning constituents will need to phone in their comments for the Charlotte Republican to respond to remotely, and aides will have better control over the discussion.

The event was announced Monday. This week there have been dozens of raucous town hall meetings in other parts of the country, including in Utah, Tennessee, Michigan, and Illinois.
