Letter: Herrera Beutler not fit for office


Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler is not fit for office. She voted for the reelection of President Trump just two short months ago, seeing him as the best choice for the office. She did this in spite of Trump’s behavior not changing at all in the last two months. He has behaved in the same manner for the last four years and the events of Jan. 6 were a culmination, not an aberration, of that behavior.

While I am gladdened that Rep. Herrera Beutler has finally “seen the light,” the fact that it literally took a coup attempt for her to get to this point is substantial evidence that she lacks the judgment necessary to hold such an esteemed position.
