I am appalled by her “Aye” vote on HR 347. We here in her district did not send her or any other R to DC to do this crap. Click on the link to review the HR and see for yourself. She voted in favor of forbidding you to protest your Representatives or anyone else in a federal building, which by the way, belongs to us, the people, the taxpayers. This is unconscionable and she must be primaried this election cycle. I urge all to research this and punish all who voted in favor of this HR. For more info click HERE,

MY LETTER TO HERERRA:
We sent you to DC to protect our rights, not tear them asunder as you just did by voting in favor of HR 347. However well intentioned you may think you were by voting “Aye” on this, you totally voted in favor of violating the rights of your constituents as outlined in the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights. I am so disappointed in your actions since you have been in Congress, I am speechless. I now find it impossible to support you any further. In fact I will be talking to one of your close supporters who donates to you, and make sure he is aware of your recent actions. You have failed to protect the constitution as your oath of office required. I will do everything in my power to make sure you are primaried this cycle. You no longer are no longer considered worthy of our trust.
As you can see here, all of the Washington state Congress delegation minus 1, voted in favor of violating your 1st Amendment rights. This is unconscionable and cannot stand. All of the Representatives in Congress are up for re-election this year. I for one will not be voting for ANY of my people in DC. Its time we sent people there that truly respect the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence.
MY LATEST LETTER:
I am writing as your constituent in the 3rd Congressional district of Washington. I oppose H.R.347 -FederalRestrictedBuildingsand Grounds Improvement Act of 2011, and am tracking it using OpenCongress.org, the free public resource website for government transparency and accountability.
Your Aye votes on this HR is a direct assault on the 1st amendment and will not go unnoticed at the polls this election cycle. You were sent to Washington to protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and your Aye vote on this HR speaks volumes to your character and intentions. I will work tirelessly for whomever your opponent will be this election cycle. We here in Washington need someone in DC who will abide by their oath of office, as you have just demonstrated, you are either unable or unwilling.
