In his Sept. 5 column, "Holy civil liberties! Hold tight to Bill of Rights,"
William H. Seewald correctly refers to Attorney General John Ashcroft as

Why is Ashcroft creepy?

As George W. Bush did not receive the popular vote and arguably was not even
voted into the office of presidency, he, along with his brother, Jeb, helped
steal what wasn't his in becoming president of the United States. At the
same time, Ashcroft lost his Missouri Senate election bid to the deceased
Mel Carnahan, clearly showing a distaste among voters for Ashcroft.

Citizens would think Ashcroft would have no opportunity to inflict his
morals upon Missouri or America, but an unelected President Bush saw
potential in his very powerful but discredited empire of chopping down the
constitutional cherry tree. While Ashcroft could not get voted into office,
Bush welcomed him. It is a matter of the creepy scratching the back of the
creepy, at the cost of liberty, freedom and justice for all. Insinuating
that someone using cannabis - smoking a joint - is a terrorist and promoting
the Victory Act to remove their American citizenship is indeed creepy and
very dangerous.

Bush and Ashcroft fighting to void constitutional protections which were
designed to protect us from the creepy is alarming.
