LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Gaetz mischaracterizations

0
47

Rep. Matt Gaetz continues to confuse culpable parties with those who aren’t. Last year he blamed the EPA for the Flint, Michigan, water crisis even though that problem was caused by the action and inaction of state health officials. Sure, it was not the EPA’s finest hour as they deferred to the State of Michigan, but it is state officials who were prosecuted and who are in prison, not those from the EPA.

Recently Rep. Gaetz has been faulting the FBI. True, one of its agents used bad judgment, but the underlying problem is Russian interference in our democratic process, not the FBI’s attempts to protect us from that involvement. One wonders what it is Rep. Gaetz is seeking to accomplish by such mischaracterizations.
