Letters to the Editor

Voloshen letter: Political scandals

So I have been writing letters to the editor every month as of late. They only print one letter per month, per individual. As of late, by the time my letter is printed, there are several other subjects making the news that I wish that I could write about. This time I am just making a list of topics, touching on each topic a little bit.

I could write about the recent sex scandals, and the fact that prominent Republicans, including the grabber himself, would rather have a pedophile than a Democrat in the Senate. Both Idaho senators have remained silent.

I could write about the Senate tax plan, which gives big tax breaks to the upper 1 percent, and leaves millions of Americans without health insurance. It will take away tax deductions for students, teachers, etc. Our Idaho senators are in favor of the bill.

I could write about the growing allegations linking the Trump inner circle to illegal contacts with Russian diplomats, attempting to influence the election. Crapo and Risch have remained silent.

I could go on, but I'm limited to 200 words. I just want all my fellow Idahoans to remember this when re-election time comes.
