What Fresh Hell Is This?

My FIFTIETH Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey (UPDATED)

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

It's me, again. Your constituent who also writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

Senator, I'd like to take a step back from the many Trump scandals now plaguing this nation and ask you about the direction of your political party, the G.O.P.

Recently at a CPAC conference, conservative columnist Mona Charen asked "How can conservative women hope to have any credibility on the subject of sexual harassment or relations between the sexes when they excuse the behavior of President Trump?"  And for that she was booed by members of the audience and security had to escort her from the hall.

In her follow-up in the NY-Times, she paints for her fellow conservatives a rather bleak picture of the current "heavily Trumpified" Republican Party and calls for her fellow conservatives to speak out against what she calls "this brainless, sinister, clownish thing called Trumpism."

So here's my question: Is she right about your party? And if you believe she is, when will you start to speak out against the brainless, sinister, clownish thing called Trumpism?

I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.

The Senator responded (kinda sorta) to this letter here.
