SENATOR RON JOHNSON (R) WISCONSIN
“CEASE & DISEST” Letter to Peaceful Protestor, Threatens to Report the Capital Police. We still live in America, right? Constitutional Right to Assemble?
Dissent is patriotic, that’s what we believe. That’s why for months citizens been showing up to Congressional offices, calling every day, writing letters/emails/postcards & more. It’s why citizens took part in town halls and rallies across the states for the last few months, during the Congressional Recess, including a 500+ person rally in Greenfield Wisconsin, and 150+ in Wausau. Complete with empty chairs for, and a large cardboard cutout of, Senator Ron Johnson.
Speaking out is the American Way. That is why it is shocking when one of the Wisconsin citizens who has been contacting Senator Johnson received a “cease and desist” letter threatening to turn him over to the Capitol Police. One expert on Congress quoted in The Intercept said this was an “extraordinary unusual” letter and that he had never heard of Congressional office taking such action before.
The letter expresses in extreme form Senator Johnson’s disregard for the opinions of his own constituents. Senator Johnson is trying his best not to hear our concerns about the future of healthcare, about the future of our country and the fate of our families. There’s another Congressional Recess coming up, and the ACA hasn’t been repealed yet. Join us in saying “We will NOT Cease and Desist!”.
S. Johnson was re elected in 2016. I’m not from Wisconsin, and unfamiliar with the morale of Wisconsin citizens. Disappointed that Wisconsin has elected two Senators that refuse citizen and constituent concerns. Of course, given the fact that every state of this nation is fighting for our basic healthcare, civil rights, women’s rights, concerns about National and International Security, the list is endless…I have faith that their are citizens from Wisconsin that have the same concerns the rest of the nation is sharing.
