LETTER: Representatives act selfishly

{{featured_button_text}}

The recent actions and statements of Scott Fitzgerald, Glenn Grothman and Ron Johnson is of their choice. The rest of us watch from afar as events unfold hopefully understanding this isn't a movie or a television show that has an end already scripted or a channel that we can change. This is real life and as much as we aren't accustomed to it, we who vote all have a role in defining where we go from here and how this ends. First by acknowledging that words matter and then by voting in through our primaries or caucuses those candidates from all parties who also acknowledge that words matter.

And when you peel back the onion of reasoning given by any of these three for their actions and statements, whether disbelief in other states' legitimacy or to give a voice against how Wisconsin's election was conducted in a pandemic, you get to the core of why they act and say these things, best defined by an adjective, a word who's definition is, "Caring only for self; influenced solely or chiefly by motives of personal or private pleasure or advantage." Remember the word selfish should any of these three run for re-election.
