During the “Check In” segment of “Late Night with Seth Meyers”, the host searched for an explanation for Congressman Rohrabacher’s unabashed defense of Russia and his anti-science positions.

Dr. Hans Keirstead responded to the segment with the following statement:

“I, like many people in Orange County, wish we could laugh at some late-night TV and then turn it off and move on, but unfortunately Dana Rohrabacher is our representative in Congress,” said Dr. Hans Keirstead.

“For too long he has put his own career and ideology before the people of Southern California and it’s time we had someone representing us whose number one priority is the quality of life for the people in our community,” said Keirstead.
