An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Do your job: uphold the constitution , insist on peaceful transfer

25 so far! Let’s get to 50 signers!

It's time for Congress to uphold the Constitution and listen to the American people, and for its members to act like science- and life-respecting adults. No members with suspected corona virus should come to the floor or sit j. Committee meetings. Please test members and enforce this. There should be no hearings and no vote in Amy Covid Barrett. It's a shocking violation of norms to give her a hearing or a vote less than a month before the election; moreover no impeached scofflaw president should be permitted to nominate to scotus. It's unconscionable for the senate to seek to proceed with any judicial nominations until another covid relief bill has passed. Make Mcconnell STOP halting bills that he thinks Trump won't sign. That's a kick in the face to our constitution. Use the veto-override and get back to serving the people you work for instead of the federalist society. Do your job, please, to publicly censure Trump and Pence for their statements asserting that they will not accept an election loss. Please make a statement on national media and bring a resolution of censure to the floor preferably with a bipartisan group of colleagues. You all need to speak out and also bring ridicule to a President and Vice President who talk so openly about defying the election. Puncture their hubris with your words: make them understand the consequences. We all know that Trump has no exit ramp and faces massive legal jeopardy. I am sure he will stop at nothing to avoid departure from office. I sure hope you are following the Transition Integrity Project at Georgetown U and that Congress is making contingency plans to protect the constitution and the right of the people to be heard. Upholding the constitution and the peaceful transfer of power is a nonpartisan issue. I hope you are making an effort to bring to their senses the craven GOP who spread Russian propaganda, do Putin's work, and appear to prefer to remain in power even at the cost of ending our democracy.
