Dear Mr. Baker,
I read your opening article in yesterday’s Sunday NY Times. I wanted to bring to your attention a few letters that I have sent a number of Republican US Senators, Speaker Ryan and a few other GOP Representatives. As of today, I received one form letter from Senator’s McCain’s office, with no reference to the points I made in my April 6, 2017, of which I have enclosed.
I wanted to express my considered opinion that the media doesn’t seem to understand the animus that we hold for Donald Trump, his administration of billionaires, bigots and individuals who want to reverse our government to where it stood before the Progressive Era.
I am constantly amazed that normal and understandably sane reporters, in the written and audio media, can ignore Trump’s track record on lies and more lies. It seems that each day goes by and there is another egregious statement and the ones, from a few days before, are ignored or forgotten. Where are the constant questions about his duplicity, his conflicts of interest, his slanderous accusations regarding President Obama’s “wire-tapping,” his wife’s visa violations and scores of other outrageous claims and assertions? Where are the follow-ups? Many of your profession seem to be above the fray and refuse to fight fire with fire.
In this enclosed letter, I have included my April 6th letter, and one that I sent out today. By the way, I am quite familiar with Congressional offices and their handling of mail. My wife worked for Representative Richard L. Ottinger, D, NY-24th CD from 1973-81, and I have had 45 years of campaign experience that ran from being the campaign coordinator for George McGovern in the City of White Plains, NY to the Chairman Chairperson for Paul Feiner, Supervisor of the Town of Greenburgh, NY, 2007 and 2009, until 2016, when my wife Linda and I were the precinct captains in a district in suburban Palm Beach County, which went 70% for Hillary Clinton.
Here is a list of Senators receiving both letters: Corker, Alexander, Blount, Collins, Ernst, Fisher, Flake, McCain, Graham, Hatch, Murkowski, Portman, Roberts, Rubio, Sasse, Toomey, Gardner, Burr, and Speaker Ryan. I assumed the other Senators were a complete lost cause.
I am not sure whether you check Facebook, but, I suggest you open up the site “Donald Trump is not my president,” and get a sense how much scores of thousands think about this unfit, unqualified and unhinged brigand.
