The Boston Globe reports that nearly 170 members of the House of Representatives have signed a letter urging President-elect Donald Trump to rescind his appointment of White Supremacist and Alt-Right poster boy Steve Bannon to the post of White House chief strategist and senior counselor in the new Trump Administration.

Representative David Cicilline, who led the effort, said in a statement Wednesday that the appointment of Bannon “sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be.”

The letter, first announced by Cicilline on Tuesday, asks President-elect Trump to rescind his appointment of Bannon as the White House chief strategist and senior counselor and also to “build a diverse White House staff who are committed to the core American values of inclusiveness, diversity and tolerance.”

The letter is shown below.

Retired from his position as a writer/editor at the National Institutes of Health, Bill Schmalfeldt saw the willingness of a cadre of right wing idiots to destroy the life of an ex-con who had re-entered public life having served his time. He spoke out against this pack of hyenas and paid for it with false attacks on his own reputation and filthy, foul and profane mockery surrounding the death of his wife in 2015.
