Letter: Shame on Republicans


Can someone explain why the only Republican attendees at the Jan. 6 commemoration were Liz Cheney and her father? Why would any member of Congress refuse to participate in this nonpartisan event, including Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler? Was the moment to share the experiences of that horrid day not important to any of them? Did not the deaths, injuries and destruction from that day move any of them? And if it did move them, who or what kept the Republicans away? What shame on all of them.
