June 6, 2020 The headlines have been filled with toppled, vandalized, and targeted statues over the past few weeks, including those of founding presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

    In the days since George Floyd’s tragic and horrifying death, America has been rocked by an unprecedented rush of anger, frustration, anxiety and fear. Even in the midst of this turmoil, we can look in the mirror and confidently remind ourselves that the United States of America remains the greatest nation in the world. But, like all great societies, we have dark sins swept under the rug. The ultimate evil of those sins is racism and, even as past generations made painfully slow but nonetheless... Read more

    Frederick Douglass in 1847 defined a true patriot as a “lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins.” To love America genuinely, we cannot sweep our problems under the rug. We must acknowledge our national sins and actively work to right these wrongs. Nearly 200 years later, Douglass’s wisdom rings true. The tragic death of George Floyd has brought our nation’s sins to the forefront. My heart broke watching the appalling video of Floyd’s slow and agonizing last moments as he st... Read more

    Why is Biden getting a free pass on sexual assault allegations? Abortion. May 1, 2020 The handling of sexual assault allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden once again has exposed the fundamental insincerity of the Left and its allies in the liberal media.

In truth, they only have double standards: one for themselves and one for everyo... Read more

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
