Not only do we receive consistently excellent service from our delivery person, the person is truly honest. One day recently there were three one-dollar bills inside the plastic bag containing the paper. We checked with a couple of neighbors who might have put them there for some reason, but none were involved. We put the money in an envelope taped to the door where the delivery person would see it, saying they must have accidentally inserted it. The next morning the envelope was there with the money and a note saying that they had found the money on our lawn. Honesty, even in small things, is appreciated.
In his two terms in the Iowa House, Rep. Gary Mohr has joined his Republican colleagues in shameless theft from the people of Iowa. He stole from the taxpayers when he ignored an easy legislative fix to refunding the federal government for overbilling. He stole from teachers when he voted to limit their collective bargaining rights. He stole from women when he voted multiple times to take their autonomy. He repeatedly stole from voters when he backed bills that require voter identification, limited the power of county auditors, and instituted a poll tax on former felons. How many more freedoms will you allow Gary Mohr to take from you?
