We had an election. Then we had an insurrection. Now we need a bipartisan investigation into what happened, why it happened, who incited or supported it, and why.

Rep. Pete Stauber voted against establishing an independent bipartisan commission to investigate the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6. Why does Congressman Stauber oppose seeking out answers? Why does Stauber lack the courage and integrity to seek the truth that 35 members of his party exhibited by voting yes on May 19?

This is about the heart and soul of our democracy, our Constitution. What does Congressman Stauber support?

Readers' View and Local Views

Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility.

Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.

With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.

We will consider exclusive Local View columns of 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
