Letter: Wake up, Republicans

(Rick Bowmer | AP file photo) Utah Gov. Gary Herbert walks through the rotunda to a COVID-19 briefing Thursday, July 30, 2020, in Salt Lake City.

I find it truly disgusting and unbelievable that Gov. Herbert has not ordered a statewide mask order when it has been proven to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19.

How many people have to get the virus and have side effects the rest of their lives before he gains he courage?

How many people have to end up in the ICU? How many people have to die before he finds his courage?

I am so sick of Republicans not having the courage and moral fiber to do the right thing. The only one who has is Sen. Mitt Romney when he voted for impeachment.

Why is the Republican Party so afraid of Trump? He is morally corrupt, a proven liar (over 16,000 at last count) and is eroding our democracy.

Wake up, Republicans, before it is too late.

Phyllis Pope, Salt Lake City
