Andy Harris' conservative hypocrisy [Letter]

While I sympathize with the sentiment, the call from some in the District of Columbia to boycott Rep. Andy Harris' district is a classic case of a misconceived proposal that allows one bad apple to spoil the whole bunch ("Harris wrangles with D.C. officials over marijuana decriminalization," July 3).

Many of us did not vote for the big-government Republican Mr. Harris, who typifies conservative hypocrisy as he claims to favor limited government while supporting restrictive, limited liberty, Big Brother interventionist policies like marijuana prohibition.

Particularly offensive is Mr. Harris' attempt to justify his two-faced dictates with the tired trope "it's for the children." Please.

O.C. Stone Scruggs
