Dear Congressman Stark,
Thank you for standing up for the American taxpayer and demanding an explanation from Secretary Gates as to why military officers were present in The House Gallery during recent debates on the House Floor.
I encourage you to contact the local print and TV news outlets in the Bay Area and expose these officers for what they truly are. They are obviously cowards who are shirking their military duty and, as such, have no right to view the government they have sworn an oath to defend in action.
To help facilitate this recommendation, I have taken the liberty of contacting the FOX affiliates in San Francisco and Sacramento as well as the San Francisco Chronicle and Sacramento Bee with the letter you sent to Secretary Gates.
I was assured you can expect journalists from these outlets to contact your office within the next day or two. But probably sooner.
In addition, as a token of my appreciation for looking out for me and my fellow taxpayers, I have sent a check for 5 dollars to your re-election campaign.
Here's looking forward to seeing you on TV. Keep up the good work.
(Northern California city), CA
