Thanks, but no thanks, Lisa

Reading Lisa Brown’s opinion article over the weekend (“I’ll protect our democratic institutions,” Sept. 2), I kept thinking, you must be kidding.

Lisa claims she wants to protect our democratic institutions. This is the same politician who sued her own constituents to overturn the voter-passed constraints on tax increases. That’s how much respect she had for democracy, trying to bypass a voter-approved initiative.

Lisa mentioned her Catholic upbringing several times. But she has so little respect for Catholic beliefs that she attempted to take away freedom of conscience for each one of her pro-life constituents. Lisa, with 100 percent NARAL rating, actively supported an abortion insurance mandate bill in the state Senate, seeking to force every insurance plan in Washington state to cover abortion.

And this is who we should support to safeguard the freedoms in our constitution?

Meanwhile, Democrats weaponized the federal government (IRS, FBI, DOJ, FISA court) against private citizens and political opponents. Separation of families at the border – which Cathy McMorris Rodgers has condemned – began under President Obama. But Democrats were silent. And now you expect us to trust you, Lisa Brown, along with Nancy Pelosi and fellow Democrats, to be transparent and even-handed?
