Congressman has Clarendon couple’s support unless evidence shows guilt

Editor:

We take the unpopular stance of supporting Chris Collins.

We grew up in a world where people were “innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.” Obviously, that is no longer the case, given the dishonesty in Albany and DC today.

Let us be very clear, We opposed Collins’ initial run. I, in fact, worked very hard on David Bellavia’s campaign in the GLOW counties. The Erie County money machine elected Collins, despite us winning Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, and Wyoming counties.

Since he won, I’ve studied Mr. Collins’ every speech, interview, and action. I have found him to be a true conservative that has fought for the things most of Western New Yorkers believe in.

Given that, my family will offer Mr. Collins our full support.

If evidence proves he conducted criminal actions, we will withdraw our support and advocate prosecution.

But not before evidence is provided to the public.

Given the recent actions of the Democratic Party, we have every reason to question the validity of these charges.

Until then, we will not be influenced by the mainstream (left) media.
