Tom Cotton Sends Cease and Desist Letter to Constituents. What Happened to Democracy?
When young people or anybody goes to speak to their Republican members of the House or Senate, they generally don't get through. These guys aren't holding town hall meetings any more at all. Tomthunkit tweeted this...
"BREAKING: Senator Tom Cotton, a man who claims to represent his constituents, literally has sent a cease and desist order to his own constituents, ordering them not to call or write him, This is the man who lied about Trump's "s***hole" comment."
By the way, Tom Cotton is the guy who was in the meeting where Donald Trump made the "s***hole" remark about African countries and Tom Cotton went on camera and lied about it.
The letter on the headline Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas - United States Senate and it says...
"This letter is immediate notification that all communication must cease and desist immediately with all offices of US Senator Tom Cotton.
All other contact will be deemed harassment and will be reported to the United States Capitol Police."
So this is the Republican war on America, frankly, on the United States. And right now they're hysterical about the guns because Richard Burr took 6.9 million dollars from the NRA, Roy Blunt took 4.5 million dollars from the NRA, Tom Tillis took 4.4 million dollars from the NRA, Cory Gardner 3.8 million, Marco Rubio 3.3 million, Joni Ernst 3.1 million, Rob Portman 3 million, Todd Young 2.8 million, Bill Cassidy 2.8 million. This is just from the last election cycle, because all these senators were up for re-election.
So you can bet your sweet patootie that right now the NRA is pouring that kind of money into the campaigns of the Senators and members of the House who are up for re-election right now.
For example, these are their names and their tweets after the Vegas shooting...
Roy Blunt: "saddened by the tragic loss of life". Senator Roy Blunt gets money from the NRA.
