Is this a man who really care about you and your children?

To The Daily Sun,

In response to Eric T. Rottenecker's letter to the editor of Nov. 4, I am submitting the following:

Let's not forget the many scandals of Donald Trump:

The Republican nominee faces a series of allegations of sexual assault.

The Republican nominee's rather lascivious attitude toward women has never been something he shied away from. Indeed, he has boasted for years of his conquests and his gleeful objectification of women.

Trump's trouble began on Oct. 7, when The Washington Post released a video in which Trump boasts of sexually assaulting women. "You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful ... I just start kissing them," Trump said. "It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything." He added, "Grab them by the (genitals). You can do anything."

Years ago, his first wife Ivana Trump accused him of marital rape, though she later recanted.

Trump is facing a civil lawsuit from a Jane Doe, who alleges that Trump raped her in 1994, when she was 13 years old, at parties hosted by the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who Trump called a friend. That lawsuit is scheduled to proceed in December, and Trump could be forced to testify under oath.

Twelve women have accused him of varying degrees of sexual exploitation or assault.

While many of the Clinton cases involve suspicion and shadowy links, many of Trump's are fully documented in court cases and legal proceedings.

The breadth of Trump's controversies is truly huge, ranging from allegations of mafia ties to unscrupulous business dealings, and from racial discrimination to alleged marital rape. They stretch over more than four decades, from the mid-1970s to the present day. To catalogue the full sweep of allegations would require thousands of words and lump together the trivial with the truly scandalous. Including business deals that have simply failed, without any hint of impropriety, would require thousands more.

Not only is there and ongoing lawsuit involving rape, he's involved in an ongoing lawsuit regarding Trump University and the bilking of millions of dollars from unsuspecting students.

He's been sued for racial discrimination in housing rentals and for unfair labor practices, not paying his workers and contractors the wages and fees due to them.

Is this a man who will really care about you or the future of your children? Will he care about our alliances to our allies abroad? Will he feel justified in using nuclear weapons against out enemies if they insult him and why not because "why would we have them if we won't use them"?

Will he respect and protect all of our citizens regardless of race or religion?

Ahern will make sure our Grafton Co. tax dollars are well spent

To The Daily Sun,

I write to ask the voters of Grafton County, District 3, to vote for Omer Ahern to serve as county commissioner on Nov. 8.

I have known Omer for approximately 10 years and I know he is truly a dedicated public servant. He has served as a county commissioner in both Sullivan and Grafton counties and he has served as a state representative as well. With the passing of long time Commissioner Ray Burton several years ago and with the imminent retirement of Martha Richards this year, Grafton County needs someone who has the experience to ensure the continuity of smooth operations. Omer is that person.

He has the knowledge and expertise to ensure that our tax dollars are well spent. For those of you who do not know Omer, his parents ran the Sullivan County Nursing Home, where they lived and where Omer was raised. I believe that his great compassion for our seniors emanates from his interaction with the residents of the county home during his youth and that same compassion will continue as he fights for the best possible care for our seniors in Grafton County.

Thank you for considering Omer Ahern as your next Grafton County commissioner.

Lee Ann Moulder
