Bergman decision OK

To the Journal editor:

There are many who take the opposite view of the “Now we know” and “Bergman blew it” letters to the editor of Dec. 16.

So, U.S. Rep. Jack Bergman, R-Watersmeet, supported a lawsuit to invalidate many of Michigan votes from the last election. Where is the evidence? Well, the lawsuit was where the evidence would be presented. So, why didn’t we just wait?

It is not true that the U.S. Supreme Court has denied our president’s legal challenge. It simply said it hasn’t the jurisdiction.

If the lawsuit is an unacceptable undermine of our free and fair election, where is the evidence of that? Mr. Bergman represents my views very well. If his actions are not main stream conservative, then what is?

We all want confidence in our vote counts and we want confidence that the votes are all legal. Let Mr. Bergman, and those who feel wronged. have their day in court.

I very much appreciate the good work of our local election volunteers and it is not their work that I have any fear of. I don’t trust Detroit. Nor do I trust Philadelphia, Atlanta, Phoenix or Baltimore. I didn’t fall off the turnip truck yesterday.

But these are intuitions and just as all of our assumptions, they are not facts. Let’s let the evidence, presented in court, clear the air. And if you are proven wrong, admit it.
