Himes did what most constituents wanted

To the Editor:

Letter writer Bob MacGuffie (Fairfield Sun, May 16) incorrectly asserted that Congressman Jim Himes ignored the interests of his constituents by voting against the formation of a House Select Committee on Benghazi. Congressman Himes cast the correct vote. Most citizens in the Fourth Congressional District don’t feel an eighth re-investigation is necessary, having been satisfied that the previous seven Congressional Benghazi hearings thoroughly probed the tragedy.

The sense of Congressman Himes’s constituents is that the GOP is conducting a politically motivated witch hunt to try and make a tragically mishandled fatal bureaucratic mess seem like a crime, and that it’s nothing more than a transparent stunt to throw red meat to the extreme right-wing base of the GOP. Even 63% of respondents to a poll, by of all sources, FOX News, say that Republicans are doing this for political gain, while only a measly 30% of respondents in the same poll think Republicans are really trying to get to the truth.
