Thank you for contacting me to express your concerns about the Department of Homeland Security Report on Rightwing Extremism. I appreciate hearing from you on this important matter.
As we tragically learned from the Oklahoma City bombing carried out by Timothy McVeigh in 1995, it is imperative that we track and investigate all potential threats from violent extremism, regardless of ideology. When it comes to the task of protecting the American people, no stone can be left unturned, no lead can go unanswered.
I am grateful to all those in our law enforcement agencies and military who answer this call to duty and protect our country. In particular, I am profoundly grateful for the service of America’s military personnel and for the sacrifices they and their families have made in protecting our country and our freedoms. Our responsibility to them is to ensure that they and their families are provided the recognition and respect that they have earned and so greatly deserve.

MY REBUTTLE: Notice in this letter how she DOES NOT EXPRESS in any way ANY regret for Veterans being catagorized as “Right Wing Extremists” by DHS…………… Very Telling………….
Her term comes up in 2012. I will work for and campaign for whomever her opponent will be in the next election….She needs to be unemployed….
MY LETTER BACK TO HER:
I see by this reply you express no regret for vets being categorized wholesale as “Right Wing Extremists. I find that very disturbing and highly unsatisfactory. As your term is coming up for re-election next year, I will be working for whomever your opponent is in an all out effort to see you removed from your office as I feel your performance is wholly unsatisfactory and you are disregarding the wishes of your Constituents and conducting yourself in a manner that is detrimental to Washington State and the United States and it citizens. You have turned me into a political activist simply because you will not listen and vote in favor the clearly right and common sense direction.
