01.29.17 To Chris Van Hollen: You voted for Ben Carson?!

This is what I just sent to our supposedly progressive senator:

Dear Chris:

I’m outraged to discover that you voted for Ben Carson to serve as HUD secretary. I don’t care if you think he is less bad than other potential nominees (the excuse Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown have given). Every single time a Democrat votes for a Trump appointee, the Democratic Party takes partial ownership for resulting policy. (I’m also disappointed by your votes for Sec. Def. and UN ambassador.) If the people of Maryland cannot trust you to do the right thing, whom can we trust? And if you will not stand firm against all GOP appointments and legislation, we have no hope of taking back our country.

—Keith

I note that even the more moderate Benjamin Cardin did not vote for Carson.

    Totally in agreement; same to any and all other “Democrats” who voted for him and any other Trump nominee. Disgusting. Cowardly. Demoralizing. Did not vote for Van Hollen to do this. There is no room for “yes” to any of these or other nominees.
