Today I called my congressional representatives, all of them Republican, about the possible (let’s face it: probable) Russian hacking into our elections. This is more or less what I said:
Hello, I am one of your constituents in Texas. I am concerned about the possible foreign intervention from Russia into our presidential election. I encourage you to join your fellow GOP senators and representatives in calling for a full inquiry. This is not a democratic or republican issue. Our nation is founded on free and fair elections, and foreign intervention puts our democracy at risk. History, and voters, will not look kindly on representatives in Congress who looked the other way when a foreign government infiltrated our elections. Thank you.
