Heard on the Hill: Braley’s Button of Support

Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) supports Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), and hes not afraid to wear his feelings on his sleeve or chest.

The lawmaker is sporting a pink button that says We stand with the Lady. Yes, there are more than a few ladies on the House floor, but were pretty sure we know which one hes talking about.

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) proclaimed in the closing sentence of the now-infamous email that he sent to Wasserman Schultz (and several members of House leadership) on Tuesday that she has proven repeatedly that [she is] not a Lady. Braley seems to be attempting to turn this dressing-down into a dressing-up with a fetching button.

Braley spokeswoman Alexandra Krasov says that, as of Friday, he had already given out 100 buttons on the House floor and has more for those who want them.

[Wasserman Schultz and Braley] are very good friends, Krasov tells HOH. He respects her very much, and the work that she does, and ... he wanted to show that in a way following the hubbub this week.
