My letter to my representative.

Dear Rep. Frelinghuysen:

I have no doubt you have heard of Karl Rove's statements at a Conservative Party fundraiser in New York State yesterday. These statements, which implied that liberals did not support our troops fighting abroad and did not want the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks punished, were deeply divisive, hurtful, and reveal a lack of understanding regarding the horror of that day to all people, regardless of political affiliation.

The people of this state will never forget 9/11, and for a government official of Karl Rove's stature to call the Democratic members of this state terrorist collaborators is appalling.

I ask that you join Senators Frank Lautenberg and Jon Corzine in calling for an apology from Karl Rove for his callous and ill-chosen comments.

Thank you.
