I am compelled to respond to the misguided political attack on me by Chalmers Johnson ("My Congressman Stands for Money, Not for Me," Opinion, Sept. 26). First, Times readers deserve full disclosure on Mr. Johnson: He is no independent observer but a liberal political activist who happens to be my campaign opponent's neighbor. Attempting to tag my campaign as the case for the institutional advantages of incumbency, he has distorted my record and the facts. In my first race for office, I opposed a long-serving Democrat in an overwhelmingly Democratic district.
