Reader's View: Stauber fails to live up to his oath

I don’t understand why, after taking an oath to defend the Constitution, Stauber would take this undemocratic action.

I was appalled that Rep. Pete Stauber signed on to the ridiculous Texas lawsuit to take away the legal votes of millions of people in four other states (“ US Supreme Court swiftly ends Trump-backed Texas bid to upend election results ,” Dec. 11).

I don’t understand why, after taking an oath to defend the Constitution, Stauber would take this undemocratic action. All Americans have the right to have their votes counted. Individual states have the right to make their own election laws. The 14th Amendment states we have “equal protection of the laws”.

Thankfully, the Supreme Court denied the request to have this lawsuit heard.

I would like to be represented by a congressperson who would live up to his or her oath of office. To me, that seems like a sadly low bar.
