LETTER: Grothman plays to Covid fringe by prescribing vitamin remedy

To Ozaukee Press:
U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman recently sent out a large postcard promoting the use of Vitamin D as a defense against Covid-19. He has been promoting this in his newsletters as well. This is an unproven theory regarding protection against the virus and variants.
It would have been responsible leadership to spend as much print space and money promoting proven methods of stopping the spread: wear a mask in public settings, social distance and get vaccinated as soon as possible.
The photograph of him on the mailer should have shown him getting the vaccination while wearing a mask, since a picture speaks a thousand words.
The questions he asks in the survey in the mailing are irrelevant red herrings designed to deflect attention from what everyone can do to protect themselves and those around them.
This is another indication that Grothman is only playing to the extremely conservatives who have control of the Republican Party. Unbelievably, they politicized a pandemic.
If he cares about his Republican, Democrat and independent constituents, Grothman would urge us enthusiastically to follow the CDC guidelines. It is past time to replace Glenn Grothman in Congress. We need the fair maps drawn by a nonpartisan committee so there will be competition for this district that currently zigs and zags to ensure Grothman keeps his seat.
