Open letter to Elise Stefanik

To the editor:

This past Saturday, Dec. 3, your hero posted on Truth Social, an oxymoron of great magnitude: “do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.”

Will you please publicly and forcefully condemn this statement? You took an oath to defend the Constitution when you were sworn into office, as did he. Now is the time to uphold your oath of office and condemn this seditious statement.

Trump once stated, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and wouldn’t lose any voters, okay?” Are you going to remain silent and prove him correct? Your current silence regarding his statement inciting sedition is tantamount to supporting it. 

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to remain silent and do nothing.

So please, if you have any patriotic blood in your body and support the Constitution of the United States, as you have sworn to do, please renounce this seditious comment.
