Letter to the editor: Moran is wrong

To the editor:

HR1, the “For the People Act,” passed the U.S. House of Representatives and is now before the Senate. This election reform package addresses voting rights, gerrymandering, money in politics and ethics reforms, among more specific provisions. I was more than dismayed to read in Sen. Jerry Moran’s newsletter that he proudly spoke on the Senate floor in opposition. He said the bill was “an affront to the United States Constitution,” stating his opinion that it was “an unprecedented power grab.”

This position is diametrically opposed to my view of democratically run elections, and he is certainly not representing me, one of his constituents, in these statements. Please do your research in this matter and let Sen. Moran know your views. Your voice should be heard!

Lynne Bodle,
