To the Editor:
Rep. Mark Meadows would like us to think of him as a “moderate or centrist Republican” (SMN, June 5, 2013) in spite of voting 97 percent of the time with his extremist party in the U.S. House. I am a “recovering Republican” and know “centrist or moderate Republicans,” and he ain’t one. More accurately, he is the poster boy of the Tea Party. Let’s face, in this day and time moderate Republicans are as extinct as the dodo.
