Our local reps aren’t responsive

Three blind mice. That is how I refer to Sen. Murray, Sen. Cantwell and Rep. Larsen. Throughout all the recent government scandals, lies, deceits, coverups, lack of accountability, etc., they say nothing. They either approve of it all or believe it all. Maybe they are afraid to speak out in fear of being hammered by and lose their status in the party, by the party leadership. If the party is more important than speaking out for truth and ethics then shame on them. I certainly do not want them to represent me and in fact they don’t. In the several letters I have written to each, I asked specific questions about the chaos. Never have I received a direct answer to any of my questions. All I ever get is a “canned” party line spiel about something I did not question. They, or their staff, did not read my correspondence, or if they did, they ignored my concerns as if I did not exist. That is despicable. As I said, three blind mice.
