Dr. Hern right on witch hunt

The Denver Post - - OPIN­ION - Jeff Baysinger,

Good for Dr. War­ren Hern for plac­ing a full-page ad in Sun­day’s Den­ver Post. The ad ex­poses the witch hunt that Con­gress­woman Mar­sha Blackburn, R-Tenn., is us­ing against Hern, a Boul­der abor­tion doc­tor. The petty de­tails her com­mit­tee is de­mand­ing are an ob­vi­ous abuse of power. By re­quest­ing names from every­one and any­one who may have in­di­rectly com­mu­ni­cated with Hern, her com­mit­tee in­sin­u­ates in­volve­ment by many in the pub­lic and is in­vad­ing per­sonal pri­vacy. Her wide and ex­cru­ci­at­ing let­ter shows she is us­ing big govern­ment power to de­stroy Hern, tac­tics just like Joe McCarthy would have used in the 1950s. Quite an irony from a per­son and a po­lit­i­cal party that es­pouses lim­it­ing govern­ment power. My hope is that some moder­ate Repub­li­cans will stand up to her hypocrisy.
