Enough beating up on Prince George's voters
Regarding Lee Hockstader’s Dec. 20 op-ed column, “A new day in Prince George’s?”:
Enough of the self-righteous tongue-lashings about apathetic Prince George’s County voters! We usually have had a choice between Mr. Horrible and Mr. Worse, and none of us had the means of breaking that cycle.
The Post has done an excellent job of informing us about who the crooks were and are, and usually specifically what they were and are doing. So the world knew. What then? Most of us were ecstatic to learn of the FBI’s involvement in the current investigations, but will the help of that agency remove enough of the rot to make a difference?
The most common refrain that I have heard from county residents is “God forgives.” Are people saying that God forgives the crooks, or that God forgives us for putting up with them?
Let’s give any crooked politicians and their associates plenty of time in prison to ask for forgiveness. After that, let’s make sure that there are sufficient laws on the books to prevent them from holding office again. If there are not, upon release they will surely be visiting all the same churches again, praying their way back into office.
