Kevin B. McGann, may God help you and your constituents! Before you decide to “judge” Congressman Chaffetz regarding how he may or may not have voted in reference to relief money for the victims of Sandy, you should get your facts straight “before” you open your mouth (Jan. 24 letter to the editor)!

For your information, sir, Congressman Chaffetz was not seeking to “undermine” help for Sandy victims, but instead was trying to be sure the money was actually spent on emergency needs! He was protecting your tax dollars! If you had bothered to investigate before speaking out of ignorance, you would have known Congress was very concerned about the “pork” added on the end of the bill by “your” constituents ... billions of tax dollars for things that had nothing to do with Sandy victims!

My suggestion, Mr. McGann, stop judging, especially when you don’t have all the facts! Judge not, lest ye be judged...!

You evidently don’t know much about Congressman Chaffetz. He is a loving and caring father and husband, who loves his country and is looking out for what he feels is in the best interest of this country! You don’t have to agree with our congressman, but you should show respect for your fellow man!

May God bless you by opening your eyes to the truth, so you can speak with intelligence and with the correct facts!
