Why was Maryland Rep. Andy Harris singled out for not voting to provide additional aid to the victims of Hurricane Sandy ("House approves additional Sandy aid," Jan. 4)?

There were 66 other House members who also said no to the bill, but Mr. Harris was the only one identified.

His decision showed his commitment to help curb government spending, which has gone haywire. This was no more than a poorly disguised attempt to end the political career of another true conservative.
