Editor: It is not enough to print constituents’ letters calling on Rep. Comstock to do the right thing and hold a public town hall meeting to explain her votes and answer constituent questions in person. She has “moonwalked” her way through many terms and thinks she can get away with it again.
You have to editorially hold her accountable. For example, in one of her recent votes, drastically affecting the federal workforce in her district, Rep. Comstock spoke against the bill on the floor of the Congress and turned around and voted for it. The Washington Post editorially criticized her. This is a pattern she followed as a delegate. Lying about her votes concerning transportation, women’s health care, etc.
She must be held accountable. It is not enough for her to say “We talk with people every week.” Voters deserve better. Voters need to know her Republican Party’s plan for the Affordable Care Act, her views on Trump’s Russian connection and the risk it represents to our national security, and his immigration plan. Voters need to know her votes on her party’s attempt to eliminate the ethics panel, Planned Parenthood, and a budget plan that explodes the deficit by $10 trillion to name a few. Her constituents deserve a face-to-face presence.
