To the Editor:
Letter writer Carole Beal asks whether Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell determines how Maine Sen. Susan Collins votes. Collins’ voting record overwhelmingly answers – yes. Even when this means denying Americans their constitutional rights. Even when it means undermining the institutions of government.
Collins is now on message with the GOP States Rights rallying cry. That is a smoke screen. Republican strings are pulled by big money, religious extremism and white supremacist influences. Maine voters continue to be played by Collins.
