Feingold Doing a Terrific Job
Sorry Mr. Tinder. Here's another letter from an out-of-towner who supports Senator Feingold's work. I live out of town now but have spent many, many happy years in Beloit.
I believe Senator Feingold is doing a terrific job as Wisconsin's senator. There is one time when I questioned his efforts: when he voted to confirm John Ashcroft to be Attorney General (despite strong Democrat opposition). Remember Ashcroft? He's the guy who lost his re-election bid to a dead man back in 2000. Russ Feingold supported Ashcroft's nomination out of principle. I have come to understand that principle and thank Russ for doing what he did.
I wonder how many of those who hold the radical right point of view remember that.
