Dear Senator Portman; Senator Brown

As constituents of the State of Ohio from Clermont County, there is a small Democratic grass roots organization called Quin-T, which currently consists of about 20 members. We represent the five local townships of Monroe, Ohio, Pierce, Tate, and Washington which has been around since the 1970’s.  Even though our county is primarily Republican there are many Democrats, Independents and reasonable Republicans who believe in our American Electoral process.

We would like to express our great concern for ourselves within Quin-T and those outside of our organization that feel they have no voice regarding our current political climate. Former President Trump continues to lie to the American people that the November 2020 election was stolen from him. He advocated this falsehood prior to, during and after the 2020 presidential election.  Along with misleading a large portion of the American people via various means of communications by encouraging our fellow Americans to distrust American democracy, on January 6th he incited a crowd of his supporters to storm the Capitol and “stop the steal”. He encouraged them to interrupt the formal counting of the electoral votes that confirmed Joseph R. Biden, Jr. to be our lawfully elected president. Our Congressmen and Congresswomen were terrorized, Capitol property was vandalized, many Capitol Police Officers were severely injured and five people died due to his reckless behavior.

We ask that you vote to convict former President Trump as his actions are impacting the premise of American democracy.  Please reflect upon your upbringing and the values that were instilled in you by your parents, grandparents, teachers and mentors.  When you sought political office you took an oath of office to uphold American democracy. If your vote is not to impeach then you deviate from that oath of office you sought to uphold.  Please consider the people of Ohio, the other 49 states, District of Columbia, and territories of the United States of America as you represent “us” as our Senator and as a citizen, as our future depends on your sense of worth to stand up for justice.

Respectfully,

Quin-T Democrat Club
