participated in helping this man get elected. and they helped destroy the candidacy of hillary clinton. at lewis should "spend more ck time on fixing and helping his district which is in horrible shape" and "crime infested", and that lewis is "all talk, talk talk, no action or results sad!" but lewis rose to prominence as a man of action in the fight for civil rights, alongside martin luther king jr. his georgia district is hardly the slum trump described on the front page of "the atlanta journal constitution," atlanta to trump -- wrong. now 30 members of congress, all democrats, boycotting trump's inauguration. even some republicans indicating trump went too far. senator ben sasse tweeting -- "john lewis and his 'talk' have changed the world." vice president-elect mike pence today visiting the marin luther
