El Salvador vote

Re "Nasty turn in El Salvador," editorial, March 13

Thanks for exposing Republican attempts to intervene in El Salvador's presidential elections. Perhaps House Republicans were feeling threatened by evidence that the new administration has respected the right of Salvadorans to choose their own president.

A group of Democratic representatives led by Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) issued a letter to President Obama asking him to commit to U.S. neutrality in El Salvador's elections. The State Department issued a public statement that said: "The U.S. government will respect the will of the Salvadoran people and will seek to work constructively with whoever wins that election."
