Letter: Nothing honorable about Ben Cline

Well, it turns out there is nothing honorable about the Honorable Ben Cline. His most recent support of conspiracy theories, mistruths and lies, as well as his continued blind support of a rogue and dangerously unstable president place him on the list of those elected officials complicit with insurrection and tyranny. Blood is on his hands.

Letter: Ben Cline acted as a Trumpian, not a Republican

I write in response to the recent editorial piece in which 6th District Representative Ben Cline offers an explanation for his support of the recent case brought forward by the State of Texas to the Supreme Court. Primarily, Mr. Cline’s defense is that the case was dismissed owing to lack of standing to bring the case forward rather than owing to its merits. This is the thinnest of arguments. As a lawyer, Mr. Cline knew, or should have known, that the Supreme Court would dismiss the case on those very grounds since it is clear that the case had no standing. By suggesting that it had “merits” that the Court should have evaluated, he conveniently overlooks the fact that dozens of courts had already dismissed the allegations of fraud and irregularities owing precisely to absence of merit. While he tries to hide his complicity in attempting to overthrow the results of the election, the fact is that this kind of political stunt has become one of his favorite activities in Washington, capped off by his astounding vote to challenge the election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania just hours after an attempted insurrection aimed at doing just that had occurred.

Ben Cline Should Resign

Be he/she, a Democrat, Republican or Independent, there is no place here for a seditionist and a traitor to democracy. Let's be clear: there is no evidence of wide-spread fraud affecting the recent election; there is no justification for an invasion of another state's right to frame its election procedures.

Congressman Ben Cline supported lies of ‘stolen’ election

Those of us who were born and raised in these mountains, and those who have chosen to make them their home, often pride themselves on their common sense. We have to plan a little differently than those who live a few minutes from all the modern conveniences. I, for one, think it’s worth all the things we have to do differently to call this place our home.

Letter: Rep. Ben Cline should resign immediately

Rep. Ben Cline needs to resign immediately. He is as much responsible as President Donald Trump for the display of domestic terrorism we all witnessed at the Capitol on Jan. 6. First he signed onto that ridiculous lawsuit presented to the Supreme Court without a shred of factual evidentiary support. A suit so ridiculous that the now conservative heavy court would not even consider it. All it accomplished was to provide the illusion of credibility to utter nonsense and fanned the flames of insurrection.

Letter: Rep. Ben Cline should resign

I have been watching Rep. Ben Cline as he continually supported the growing disturbing behavior of President Donald Trump with dismay. However, it is clear that Cline not only does not represent his constituents in favor of throwing in his lot with a selfish, dishonest, dangerous man. He is now forever aligning himself with a group of toadying, obsequious sycophants.
