Show of decency, please

Re “Allen Warren’s bank shot” by Raheem F. Hosseini and Matt Kramer (SN&R News, December 8):

This guy is emblematic as to what is wrong with Sacramento—secretive, morally bankrupt, ethically challenged. You would think at the very least, he would put on a show of decency and recuse himself from taking part in something he is so clearly invested in. But no, in Sacramento, the pols put their dirt right out on display for everyone to see. And this guy does not even live in our district.

Foxes in the hen house

Re “Political industrial complex” by Jeff vonKaenel (SN&R Greenlight, December 8):

Perfect mix: The Republicans had all the bases covered to rig and steal another election. Problem, though: They left a trail a mile wide. FBI director James Comey’s interference in the closing moments of the 2016 presidential election. Republican voter ID and voter suppression laws. Republican’s gerrymandering in over 20 states with Republican governors and legislatures. The largest electronic voting machine company, Election Systems & Software, Republican all the way, counting the votes. Did someone say “major conflict of interest”? And Rep. Kevin McCarthy, a Republican politician, inadvertently let the cat out of the bag when he told of a yearlong smear campaign to destroy Hillary Clinton’s approval ratings and image.

The logistics of Republican election fraud: How did the Republican foxes get into the electoral hen house to subvert the election? Electronic votes can be tampered with or added or subtracted, causing votes to disappear without a trace. Most everyone knows how things can disappear on computer screens. Changing the results on the tabulator is the most efficient way to rig an election.

So you ask, why have the Democrats, the Obama administration, media, newspapers and Department of Justice, with all their resources, done nothing about this easily verifiable Republican election theft? A really good question.

Re “Clueless Democrats” by Jan Bergeron (SN&R Letters, December 8):

Jan Bergeron asks: “Tell me again how the two parties are not two sides of the same rotten political coin.”

With all the global corporate similarities, one party leads a vendetta against women and the planet. The other doesn’t.
