GOP Sen. Tom Cotton threatens to call cops on liberal constituents who keep writing him letters: report

Published

on

Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-AR) office has started sending out warning letters to liberal activists who have bombarded the senator with phone calls and letters.

The Arkansas Times reports members of activist group Ozark Indivisible have been receiving cease-and-desist letters ordering them to stop trying to contact Cotton.

“This letter is immediate notification that all communication must cease and desist immediately with all offices of US Senator Tom Cotton,” the letter states. “All other contact will be deemed harassment and will be reported to the United States Capitol Police.”

One person who received the cease-and-desist letter tells the Arkansas Times that Cotton’s actions show that the senator does not have respect for any constituents who have differing views.

“I believe if Tom Cotton’s office were to respond as to why they sent this letter, I think they just honestly don’t want to listen to any citizen’s opposing view or hear the numerous grave concerns U.S. citizens have about the serious & ongoing attack on our Democracy,” the constituent writes.

Cotton’s office responded to say that it only sends out such letters in extreme circumstances.

“If an employee of Senator Cotton receives repeated communications that are harassing and vulgar, or any communication that contains a threat, our policy is to notify the U.S. Capitol Police’s Threat Assessment Section,” a spokesperson told THV 11.

Cotton staffer John Noonan writes on Twitter that one person who received the letter only did so because they called an intern a “c*nt” over the phone.

GOP ripped for refusing to remove Trump from office: ‘Folly of that failure becomes clearer by the day’

Published

on

Republicans seeking to keep control of the United States Senate were harshly criticized by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for failing to remove President Donald Trump from office during impeachment.

"For four years now, as both a candidate and president, Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked America’s voting system, falsely claiming voter fraud any time it suited his needs. In a new low, last week he threatened the federal funding of two states over their reasonable moves to facilitate mail-in voting," the newspaper noted in an editorial published online on Memorial Day. "What does it say that the head of the world’s leading democracy is so intent on undermining that democracy?"

Fox News commentator slammed for mocking Joe Biden’s decision to wear a mask

On Monday, during his observance of Memorial Day, former Vice President Joe Biden donned a face mask in accordance with CDC guidelines — a contrast with President Donald Trump, who has frequently refused to wear a mask even in some places that require them.

But Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume went out of his way to mock how Biden looked wearing it.
