Doesn’t truth matter?

Regarding the letter to the editor, dated Oct. 16, titled “Doolittle voting record,” the writer gives an “F” to Representative Doolittle. In every citation of Representative Doolittle’s voting record, the writer is wrong. The writer deserves an “F” for not checking facts or, worse yet, for trying to deceive.

The writer states that Representative Doolittle was not present to vote on HR 1532 and HR 857. Both bills were referred to committees, where they are today. Representative Doolittle is not a member of any committee these bills were referred to. Technically, he wasn’t present to vote, and even if he were, he couldn’t. The implication by the writer was meant to deceive.

The writer states that Representative Doolittle voted no on HR 2673, HR 2519, HR 1472, HR 2691, and HR 6. The bills HR 2519 and HR 1472 were referred to committees which Representative Doolittle is not a member.

How could he have voted no? On HR 2673, HR 2691, and HR 6, Representative Doolittle voted yes. It’s one thing to disagree with our elected leaders. It is altogether another to willfully lie and deceive. Doesn’t truth matter?
