To the Editor,
Recently, after hearing that our first district congressman Jim Hagedorn was just recovering from kidney surgery, I was surprised to hear his name mentioned as one of the congressman who voted in favor of objecting to the electoral college vote that favors President-elect Joe Biden.
This vote occurred after the “Trump mob assault” on our nation’s capitol which ended in the killing of a capitol policeman and four who were part of the “mob.”
Questions: Was there virtual voting on this?
Why hasn’t Rep. Hagedorn replied to any of my correspondence asking for an explanation for his vote?
(During the campaign last year I was getting weekly e-mails from him telling of all the good things he was doing for southern Minnesota.)
Why hasn’t he responded to invitations to media requests to explain his reason for his vote?
If he is feeling okay, I feel it is time for him to carry out his duties to represent all of his constituents, especially in this troubled time for our dear U.S.A. I look forward to seeing a public response and hopefully before this is published. Thank you.
Sincerely, Joan Redig
