What will U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis do in the wake of the Comey firing? Will he demand a special prosecutor or independent commission? This is the time when we see what his convictions really are. He shouldn't expect to win another election if he sits back idly and watches American democracy waste away.

Our democracy is only as strong as the laws that govern it and ensuring that those laws apply equally to everyone. With Attorney General Sessions recommending and getting the firing of the man currently investigating him we need strong, independent and resolute action from our congressional representatives.

If Davis will not give us that leadership, we should find someone who will stand up for our democracy and the will of the people. One would hope "that the elected might never form to themselves an interest separate from the electors" (Common Sense, Thomas Paine). And one can see that if he does not stand up and demand a thorough investigation that he is of no use to his electors. A majority of Americans want an independent investigation. U.S. Rep. Davis please put your country ahead of party and do the right thing.
