To the editor:
I am Jennie Sanchez, a United States citizen, registered voter in Colorado’s Third Congressional District. I write to urge voters to contact Representative Lauren Boebert.
Ask her to vote to impeach Donald Trump;
Condemn her seditious encouragement of rioters who stormed the Capitol.
My people have a saying that applies to Representative Boebert. Tanto que peca el que mata la vaca como el que detiene la pata. (The person who holds the legs of the cow is as guilty as the person who kills the cow). I hold her responsible for the insurrection at the Capitol last Wednesday.
I heard Representative Boebert proclaim on the floor of Congress that she supported the people from Colorado who were rallying for the march. These folks were part of the group that threatened lives and destroyed property at the Capitol. Even after the riot, Representative Boebert continued to support the Trump lie that the election was rigged. She voted to reject the state-certified votes of electoral college members from Arizona and Pennsylvania.
I have worked for voting rights since the 1960s. In 1993, I was lead plaintiff in a voting rights lawsuit that won for Latinos in Colorado the ability to elect a state representative of their choice. We deserve a Congressional representative who has integrity and who will live up to her oath to support the constitution and the laws of the United States.
Please take action. Call Representative Boebert at 202 225-4761.
Jennie M. Sanchez
