Letter: Kudos to Herrera Beutler


I really want to lift up Rep. Herrera Beutler’s vote in favor of impeachment. In this divided political environment, it takes bravery to oppose the prevailing view of one’s own party. While I haven’t been her biggest fan these past few years and I wish she’d stood up to the president sooner, she deserves kudos for taking part in the most bipartisan impeachment in American history and making an important rebuke of a dangerously unpredictable demagogue.

Hopefully more politicians follow her example of fighting for the truth, even when the truth is politically inconvenient.
