Almost the entire Democrat section of panel is gone, while families testify
Stay Classy, Democrats!
At the House Oversight Committee today, the mother of dead former Navy Seal Sean Smith was there. So was the father of Tyrone Woods.
You know who wasn’t there? Democrat members of the committee, MA congressmen John Tierney and Stephen Lynch.
During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearingabout Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.
Tierney–best known for the millions of illegal dollars pouring through his wife’s bank account that he (ahem) knew nothing about–was one of the Democrats who walked out on the testimony of the families of the Benghazi victims. So was Rep.. Stephen Lynch.
You’d think that four dead Americans, a consulate over-run by terrorists, an administration that hasn’t brought anyone to justice and a president who hasn’t even answered the question “Where were you and what did you do?” would be enough to get a congressman’s attention.
But for Tierney and Lynch, partisanship comes ahead of everything–even dead Americans.
