Letter: Ayotte isn’t the only one
Re “Big money versus the rest of us” (Monitor editorial, Jan. 24):
I am writing in response to recent criticism of Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s out-of-state fundraising efforts. I wonder why such scrutiny is being shown to her, where this is common practice among members of Congress, including Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. To those who claim that this means she is only accessible to a chosen, wealthy few, I would point out that she hosts more town hall forums here in New Hampshire than anyone else so that anyone who wishes to speak with her has every opportunity to do so.
If you don’t like the fact that money is involved in politics, then do something about that. Do not criticize Ayotte for engaging in a practice that is certainly not unique to her.
