2017 Letters to the editor stock

How can you continue to provide space for Laura Hollis' guest column? She is a political hack. All of her articles can be summarized as "Democrats bad, Republicans good."

Her most recent article, “Democratic Party is rotting, inside an out” has the audacity to criticize the “rot” in the Democratic party by focusing on Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, and Donna Brazille.

Yet she’s totally blinded to the fact that the president is a sexual predator with 16 allegations of sexual misconduct, and some Republicans are lining up to support a pedophile in Alabama. How does that “rot” compare to what’s right in front of her?

And she brings up a 40 year old acquaintance of Obama’s and tries to tie him to Ayers’ actions when Obama was 8.

Obama was in office for eight years. Did he do anything to suggest he supported Bill Ayers' philosophy? No, his only sin was being black.
