Investigate Ehlers’ Claims on the Iraq War

On Friday, July 6 the Grand Rapids Press ran a short article about a demonstration organized by the Iraq Summer campaign. The article has only one quote from the organizers of the effort to challenge Rep. Ehlers’ position on the US Occupation of Iraq, with no details on why the group is opposed to the current policy. The article quotes Congressman Ehlers three times, but never verifies his claims about US policy in Iraq, allowing him to make statements with no accountability.

Please send the Grand Rapids Press an email using the pre-written letter below demanding that in the future they hold politicians accountable for their statements by examining their accuracy:
