I read with disbelief the misinformation that Loose Lips chose to print about the Honorable Sabrina Sojourner in his 4/18 column. Obviously, LL has never set foot in the U.S. (shadow) representative’s office on the 10th floor of 1 Judiciary Square. If he had, then he probably would have been greeted by Sabrina’s chief of staff, Argelia Valtierra, and the eight interns who work for her. LL must also have selective seeing and hearing, because the TV piece he referred to very clearly explained that Sabrina is a shadow representative for the District of Columbia and that we, citizens, do not have full voting representation in Congress.

Also, as one of the new ex-officio members of the D.C. Democratic State Committee, I have observed that the committee has many committed individuals who take their responsibilities seriously. I guess LL hasn’t been to a meeting in quite some time or else he also would have known that.

Maybe it’s time for a new political gossip who gets out more, since the one you have is incredibly out of touch with what is really going on. Or tell LL to at least check out his facts so that the potshots he takes at our local politicos are at least based in reality.
