Letter: Investigating Reyes’ post-election activities is legitimate

All of us who support free elections and democracy owe  Rep. Andrew Stoddard our support in his effort to investigate the post 2020 election activities of Attorney General Sean Reyes. His efforts to first challenge, and then overturn, the election of the Biden/Harris ticket merit scrutiny.

Senate President Stuart Adams’ description of Stoddard’s initiative as “divisive politics” is 100% wrong. What is divisive is trying to disenfranchise the 81 million Americans who voted for President Biden. It is not divisive to hold people responsible for their actions.

Stoddard is a highly regarded young prosecutor. I hope he gets his chance to present his case in the Legislature. If not, the U.S. Attorney for Utah should examine the legitimate questions he has raised.

James Scott, Sandy
