I would like to point out the names of the fucking scumbags who walked out of a committee meeting, rather than hear the testimony of those most closely affected. To be more specific, a meeting of the House Oversight and Government Reform, which had been receiving testimony from family members of those killed more than a year ago at the consulate and compound in Benghazi, Libya.
During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about 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.
I gathered the entire membership of the committee from this page and since the only two scumbags who stayed are mentioned by name (Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Rep. Jackie Speier), it is easy to winnow down the names of the fucking scumbags who either walked out, or didn't bother to show up in the first place.
- Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY-14)
- Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.)
- Rep. John Tierney (MA-6)
- Rep. Wm. Lacy Clay (MO-1)
- Rep. Stephen Lynch (MA-9)
- Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-5)
- Rep. Gerald Connolly (VA-11)
- Rep. Matt Cartwright (PA-17)
- Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-2)
- Rep. Tammy Duckworth (IL-8)
- Rep. Danny K. Davis (IL-7)
- Rep. Peter Welch (VT)
- Rep. Tony Cardenas (CA-29)
- Rep. Steve Horsford (NV-4)
- Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-1)
I would have locked the door behind them, and held a few key votes right away. If any of these are your representative, you have my condolences, and my strongest suggestion that you get them on the horn and demand an accounting.
Of course, they have already received their marching orders from Broomstick One regarding Benghazi:
Scumbags, one and all.
