Councilman Grasso's rants make him a bully

The truth is that the only thing worse than a Republican is a Republican bully with an obvious anger issue. The reference is to Anne Arundel County Councilman John Grasso, who took some joy in berating some of the voters at North County High School who stood in line on Election Day ("Arundel councilman said to bully early voters," Nov. 14).

Mr. Grasso, with all due respect, keep in mind that we live in a civilized society where juvenile behavior like yours is simply not acceptable.

It may work in a third-world country devoid of decorum and rife with chaos, but not here. The Maryland Republican party, with nary a detectable heartbeat in this state, needed your churlish rants like a malamute needs snow mittens.

    The local front man for anti-immigrant hysteria thinks it is time to change the 14th Amendment and myriad Supreme Court precedents to exclude children of non-citizens born in the United States from birthright citizenship ("Illegal immigration is costly," Aug. 24).
