To the editor: Congressmen Fred Keller will be forever linked to the violent assault on the U.S. Capitol and our democracy. It is fitting that his editorial of Jan. 6, defending his failed attempt to thwart a free and fair election, appeared the same day as the assault.

We will now watch the next few months as Fred tries to distance himself from the misfits and anarchists who assaulted our democracy. He will downplay his own role instigating the crazed domestic terrorists. He will tell us how outraged he is with the violence and how it has no place in our discourse.
