FROM:Stephen Ring, Hampton Bays
Over the past almost eight years, I have written many “Letters To The Editor” (Southampton Press) and even more emails and blogs attacking Lee Zeldin for his connection to the Ultra Right Neo Nazi Teabaggers. I am sure there were those who shrugged their shoulders and said … Oh Yeah, Right Steve ! Today, I received an email from “The Daily Kos” which contained a tweet and two pictures from award winning Presidential Historian Michael Beschloss. These pictures say it ALL !
An additional note: We, on the East End of Long Island are fortunate to have, one of the best local newspapers in the country, The Southampton Press. This week, Phil Keith, a True Republican, in his column “Mostly Right”, has a great article “A Conspiracy of Dunces” – A MUST READ.
Congressman Lee Zeldin, along with his Republican colleagues – Reps. Chris Jacobs, Nicole Malliotakis, and Elise Stefanik – by their actions, endorsed the acts of terror and insurrection we saw on Wednesday. Many Republican Senators and Congresspeople stood up for our democracy while Zeldin and his extremist allies trashed it and demonstrated his complete contempt for the people of the United States. They must resign and they must resign now!
From Jay S. Jacobs:
Earlier today, I called on Republican Representatives Chris Jacobs (NY-27), Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11), Elise Stefanik (NY-21), and Lee Zeldin (NY-01) to resign for their complicity in yesterday’s deadly insurrection on the US Capitol.
Representatives Lee Zeldin, Nicole Malliotakis, Elise Stefanik and Chris Jacobs have not only violated their oath of office, they have disgraced the districts and state that they represent. These four have spent weeks and months delegitimizing our electoral process thereby undermining our faith in our democratic institutions. Yesterday, we saw the grave consequences of supporting such divisive and false claims.
These Elected Officials do not deserve to hold office and represent New York. If you agree, please sign this petition demanding their resignation.
After supporting these lies against our democracy by a narcissistic authoritarian in the White House who wanted to cling to power, they must resign. I hope you can join me in calling for their resignation.
Jay S. Jacobs

From Stephen Ring (Hampton Bays):
I am sure, like me, you are disgusted by the attempted coup yesterday in Washington DC. While one usually feels powerless, at these times, I am hoping, with your help, we can achieve something positive.
With your help and possible contacts, I would like to start three petitions against Lee Zeldin.
1. Petition to Nancy Pelosi asking her not to seat Lee Zeldin as he betrayed his oath to defend the United States Constitution. This is within her powers to do so. https://vote.nydems.org/demand-their-resignation
another petition: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/resign-these-politicians-have-failed-new-york/?link_id=1&can_id=2941fab48821fe5b3399a026f1ea22b8&source=email-theyve-failed-new-york&email_referrer=email_1038475&email_subject=new-york-these-lawmakers-must-resign
and this petition from Vote Vets: https://secure.everyaction.com/4HpdVY3bdUic4-UkiHKmvA2?refcode=em210108&emci=d4da0995-d051-eb11-a607-00155d43c992&emdi=8a47eb59-db51-eb11-a607-00155d43c992&ceid=1202487
2. Petition to Secretary of Army to have Lee Zeldin Court Marshaled for betraying his oath, participating in an attempted coup, and bringing dishonor to the United States Army.
3. Petition to the New York State Bar to have Lee Zeldin Disbarred for all of the above reasons.
I hope we can do something to save our Country and this experiment of ours, known as democracy.
Stephen Ring, Hampton Bays

Superb video on the “never forget their names seditionists” in Congres, including Zeldin, who enabled Trump. https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2021/01/08/election-accountability-reality-check-avlon-sot-newday-vpx.cnn
