Letter: Dina R. Saah, Ashburn

Editor: The knives are out for Congresswoman Barbara Comstock as Democrats are eager to wage a partisan campaign against her this fall.

But, on June 12, the same day that Democrats nominated State Senator Jennifer Wexton to challenge her, Comstock passed a bipartisan bill to help combat the opioid crisis.

The bills main Democratic sponsor just happened to be the Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

This conundrum presents a simple question: if Comstock is so bad, why are Democrats voting for her bills?

    I’ll be voting against Rep. Comstock this November because she votes with Trump 97% of the time. She voted to eliminate the Election Assistance Commission in her role on the House Administration Committee. This shows her complete disregard for protecting our elections. She has failed to defend the men and women of the FBI and the IC from the constant attacks by the Trump administration (many of whom live in her district). She’s also dishonest. Even though she votes straight party line, her campaign literature doesn’t list her party affiliation.

    The “Election Assistance Commission?” You mean the same EAC the League of Woman Voters is suing for allegedly suppressing the vote in 2016 for the grievous sin of requesting states ask individuals for proof of citizenship when registering to vote? That EAC?

    If Barbara is ‘dishonest’, then Jennifer Wexton is a liar when she thought the people of Loudoun were so stupid they’d be fooled into believing that Medicaid expansion wasn’t really… Medicaid expansion. She did that, in writing, to a local newspaper. Jennifer Wexton supports stripping Virginians of their due process protections and insulted real law enforcement officers by dressing up her staff as fake police officers supporting her in a campaign ad. Is that dishonesty?
