Bergman Needs to be Sent Home
By Patricia Mallon, Published in the Record Eagle, Saturday, August 27, 2022
Republicans signed Bob Lorinser’s petition to be put on the primary ballot as the Democratic candidate for Congress in Michigan’s First District. I know this because I circulated petitions. Some grabbed the petition out of my hands to sign. They signed out of their disgust with U.S. Rep. Jack Bergman, R-Watersmeet, for his vote against certifying Michigan’s electoral votes and against investigating the events of Jan. 6. One Republican friend called Bergman a traitor.
Democracy matters. Integrity and decency matter, too. Republicans: Maybe you won’t vote for Lorinser, but don’t vote for Bergman. Send him home.
