Now is a perfect time for Rodney Davis to show the half of his district that voted for his opponent on Tuesday that he is willing to break from the insanity infesting the White House.
The president's attack on Jim Acosta, the forced resignation of attorney general Jeff Sessions, the reassignment of oversight of the Mueller investigation and the rambling, antagonistic press conference the day after the mid-term election should be just as alarming to him as it is to me.
As a constituent and fellow Millikin University alumnus, I hope he will represent the people of Decatur by clearly denouncing the president's actions. If he is as bipartisan as he claims, he should announce his intention to work with the incoming Democratic majority in the House to support the Sessions investigation.
Congress has a constitutional duty as a check and balance. If Davis is a man of integrity, he can prove it to me and the rest of his district by showing that he believes the actions of the president are not acceptable.
