It was a disgrace to see AK dressed in white supporting the ultra left unhinged radicals at the impeachment hearings. No respect for America and our democratic constitution. You are a lawyer and you have no independent thought just follow the mob. It is time for you to be voted out of office. Shame on you.

After watching the State Of The Union I was extremely disappointed in Ann Kuster's behavior and disrespect to the President. All I can say Kuster is nothing more than a puppet. So disappointed in her.
