Letter to the Editor, by Peter Gerlach
We are seeing many letters accusing Rep. Adam Kinzinger of being unresponsive to those he represents; I believe this to be an unfair characterization. In fact, I find the truth to be quite the opposite; Kinzinger is at the beck and call of those he represents, and will bend over backward to do their bidding.
The problem lies in the fact that Kinzinger has never represented the people of the Illinois 16th Congressional District; rather, he serves those who paid to put him in his seat – Shelden Adelson, the Koch brothers, and their anti-worker, anti-family front group the American Legislative Exchange Council.
We will have a chance to rectify this travesty of democracy in November by electing Sara Dady to Congress, and receiving actual representation in Washington.
