Due to strong concerns I have about the nomination of Timothy Geithner and the pending approval by the U.S. Senate of his appointment as Treasury Secretary, I have faxed to the below U.S. Senators from the state of Indiana (but seperately) as follows: January 25, 2009 The Honorable Senator Richard Lugar 306 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, D.C. 20510 Fax (202) 228-0360 January 25, 2009 The Honorable Senator Evan Bayh. 463 Russell Building. Washington, DC 20510 Fax (202) 228-0655 Dear Senator Lugar Dear Senators Bayh No nominee should be confirmed to any government office that by his actions has been shown, clearly and intentionally, to violate the applicable laws and regulations which he would be required to enforce in the performance of his appointed duties. A yes vote to confirm Mr. Timothy F. Geithner as Secretary of the Treasury can only be seen as an egregiously cynical vote and would be a failure of your duty to the citizens of the state you represent. I hope you will honor your commitment to do your duty and vote no to his confirmation. Respectfully, Signed: I "faxed" my letter(s) because I have found in the past that faxes get a prompt reply of some kind or another. Those who support his appointment may want to contact their own U.S. Senators, and those who wish to oppose it may want to contact them in that regard also. My own letters of communication come after long consideration that I must speak out to the decision makers in Washington. I understand that this is little more than of statistical value, but hopefully it is part of a much larger pattern to hold them responsible for their votes. Your own senators addresses and fax numbers are avaiable with a quick search on the internet.
