To the Editor:

Re "Ads Will Seek to Turn DeLay's Powerful Network Into His Downfall" (news article, March 30):

The assertion by Dan Allen, spokesman for the House majority leader, Tom DeLay, that the Democrats are "attacking the House Republicans in order to bring the House down" reveals the magnitude of G.O.P. arrogance.

House Republicans, by themselves, are not the House of Representatives. Nor will attacking them or their leader bring the House down.

Evidently, Republicans now regard themselves as the only rightful occupants of Congress, just as they see themselves as the only ones entitled to sit in the White House.

This is not what was intended by the framers of the Constitution when they guaranteed a republican form of government.
