My HUNDRED AND EIGHTEENTH Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

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

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

Senator, we need to keep talking about Donald Trump's racist attacks on Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley,and Rashida Tlaib.

Senator, you're on record saying that each woman's American citizenship is as valid as yours.

So why, Senator, have you remained silent regarding the recent "Send her back" chant heard at a recent Trump/MAGA rally triggered by Trump's criticism of Representative Omar? Why have you remained silent about Trump's repeated dishonesty regarding that chant?

For example, he said he tried to stop it by talking over it right after it started, but that's just a lie, isn't it? He said he didn't like it but then praised the chanters as patriotic, and so on.

Senator, if Representative Omar's citizenship is as valid as yours, how is it patriotic to demand that she be "sent back" (to where, exactly?) on account of her politics?

When will you speak up against such un-American bigotry?

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