Letter: More silence from Brian Davis

Published 9:57 am Wednesday, October 29, 2008

At this date all citizens of Minnesota and most everyone in the United States are aware that Sixth District Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann went on national television to say that Barack Obama may have “anti American views” and that the media should do an investigation of Congress to see who is “pro America or anti-America.”

Tim Walz and other Democratic members of the Minnesota Congressional delegation along with Colin Powell, Tim Pawlenty, John Kline and Arnie Carlson have said that Bachmann was wrong to say what she did.

However, once again on this issue, Brian Davis has elected to remain completely silent on how he views Bachmann’s comments.

This is very reminiscent of his refusal to tell citizens what diseases he would vote to delete from state mandated insurance coverage.

Does Brian Davis agree with Bachmann?  If not, why doesn’t he say so?  Davis has demonstrated a reluctance to be straightforward with voters on at least two crucial issues.

Residents of the First District deserve candor from a person who wants to represent us in Congress.
