Letter to the Editor

I am intrigued by Vasquez's refusal to discuss his "political views" about the
Peace Corps while his nomination is under scrutiny by the U.S. Senate.

Does he feel that his political views about that agency are irrelevant to his
qualifications for the post? Perhaps he is refraining from discussing that issue to
prevent a discussion of his qualifications for the job.

As I understand his qualifications, they include his having been a police
explorer scout, a local police officer and a failed local politician and Republican
Party hack who bears no little responsibility for the largest municipal bankruptcy
in history.
