In a letter posted on Congress.org, a constituent praises Rep. Harry Mitchell, Arizona Democrat, for his "brilliant intellect." As evidence, Mr. Mitchell's admirer cites the congressman's vote for the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007.
"[August] will mark the 20th anniversary since the United States deployed almost 700,000 troops to the Persian Gulf," said Chairman Mitchell. "With a growing number of these veterans developing undiagnosed and multi-symptom illnesses, they have looked to the people who promised them the care worthy of their sacrifices when they returned home.
