Letter to the Editor from Pat Ward

To the Editor:

I guess I wrote The Standard before about honoring our vets who fought for our constitution and country, but yet you put half pages, probably free of charge, in The Standard by Grassley or Osmundson, who are members of the Trump and Republican party that held an insurrection of this country to invalidate an honest and fair election. They, in part, are in the process of passing voting laws to restrict people of color from voting.

Any Iowan, man or woman, who holds an elected position should be able to pay for their words. It’s funny, these people slip into town without anyone’s knowledge, but yet suddenly their picture appears in the paper with only a few select area people in the picture from a certain party. I didn’t fight for this country so the Republican party could try and take over this country and put in a dictator.
