Letter: Cagle’s punitive action isn’t befitting of a public official

To Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle: I am writing regarding your recent action against Delta Airlines following the company’s decision to abandon the practice of discounts for NRA members. It appears to me that your support of the NRA is narrowly focused and outweighs a public official’s expected comprehensive and objective view of matters affecting all constituents of said public official.

Your punitive action against Delta, as it appears to me, gives me considerable pause when considering what might be your actions when an ordinary citizen who does not have the power you have as lieutenant governor expresses an opposing view on a specific topic. Are our First Amendment rights at risk?

Please reconsider your action. Thank you.

Nancy Edwards
