Open Letter, Congressman Yoho; from your Gainesville constituent Randon Hays
“Please look at the document in your coat pocket. First make sure it says “US Constitution.” Then go to Article One, Section Two, Clause Five and read carefully. There it cites your responsibility to initiate impeachment. This responsibility resides solely with the current House of Representatives, not former President Obama.”
As one of your constituents, since the last election I have been observing your performance as FL CD3 elected representative. I am extremely troubled in what I am witnessing. You have spent time giving embarrassing national media interviews, writing opinion articles where you insist you know more about the constitutionality of the president’s executive orders on immigration than the judiciary, and further that judges should be impeached. You go on to defend the frankly treasonous activity of Congressman Nunes by stating that he works for the President. This leaves one to ask, “What Constitution have you been reading or defending?” These statements by you that are directly contrary to the US Constitution leave me wondering if you are on the same page as your constituents.
At one of your recent town halls, your performance was an embarrassment. You tried to demonstrate why you want policies from the mid twentieth century by producing numbers from the partisan House Budget Committee, rather than the Congressional Budget Office. My point being, your numbers are extremely partisan and not credible. For many including me, your presentation fell on deaf ears and was insulting.
My ultimate conclusion is if I do not have confidence that you understand your role as representative of the commonwealth of your district (ALL your constituents), and your understanding of the role the three branches of government play, AND numbers not presented through your partisan lens, then I certainly have absolutely no confidence in your ability to govern effectively. You sir, and your Freedom Caucus and GOP colleagues have proven over and over that all you know is obstruction. You and your GOP colleagues have no idea how to actually govern. Your public statements prove that repeatedly.
Please look at the document in your coat pocket. First make sure it says “US Constitution.” Then go to Article One, Section Two, Clause Five and read carefully. There it cites your responsibility to initiate impeachment. This responsibility resides solely with the current House of Representatives, not former President Obama.
The best way you can repair and save your legacy in my opinion is to focus on the clear and present danger currently residing in the White House, speak out and do something about it!!! STOP glad-handing national media and everyone else; defending the indefensible, you are embarrassing the constituents of Florida CD3, as well as being complicit in placing our nation in great danger.
