LTE: Washington’s swamp has become cesspool

To the editor,
Just as the 2nd Amendment has been misinterpreted, so is our definition of the so-called “swamp.” The “swamp” consists of large corporations, lobbyists, Exxon Mobile, Koch brothers, ect.

The effective way to drain the “swamp” is to take the money out of politics. Instead, what do we do? We put Exxon Mobile, big business heads and hedge fund managers in charge of our country. Now, it is no longer a “swamp,” it has become a cesspool of absolute corruption.

God help us …
