Robert D. Love: GOP was invited

GOP was invited

I enjoy reading the letters to the editor to take in different points of view. However, you should filter out letters that are simply wrong. The Sept. 19 letters included “GOP not invited,” which stated “not one member of the Republican Party was invited to join in honoring King.” That is blatantly wrong.

A quick Google search shows, “Organizers did invite several prominent Republicans – including both Presidents Bush, former Gov. Jeb Bush, former Gov. Mike Huckabee, House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Sen. John McCain – to speak.”
