Democrats are now the law and order party

The following Letter to the Editor was published in The Daily Sun on Sept 13, 2022.

This November, voters should choose law and order party candidates, the Democrats.

As President Biden pointed out in recent speeches, the Republican claim as the party of Law and Order has come crashing down around them. Most MAGA Republicans refuse to acknowledge the criminality of the January 6, 2021, attack on our Capitol and now refuse to acknowledge former President’s crimes of removing highly sensitive documents from the White House and then obstructing their legal return to the National Archives. Rather than call for justice, many in the MAGA crowd choose to criticize the FBI and the Department of Justice, some even calling for de-funding or violence.

As outlined in detail in the release of a recent Department of Justice court filing, highly sensitive documents were taken from the White House to Mar-a-Lago. The filing including photos of various top-secret documents spread on the floor next to a box of framed Time cover photos. Efforts to recover these documents have been underway since Trump left the White House but were consistently resisted by Trump and his attorneys.

Our democracy will only survive if we vote for Democrats on November 8th to assure the rule of law prevails.
