For those who not following anything but the debt ceiling negotiations this week, you missed out on a doozy of a virtual smackdown.
Earlier this week, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) tossed off an angry email to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) and CC’d all House leadership.
The next day the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues, led by Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), held a press conference blasting West for his comments, while Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) has made buttons in support of Wasserman Schultz (and even changed his avatar to prove it).
James Jones, communications director for DC Vote, tapes a "DC Constituents Service Day" sign on the wall as he stands with other DC residents outside of Rep. Andy Harris's office on Capitol Hill to protest Harris' actions against D.C.'s marijuana laws on Thursday, July 24, 2014. DC Vote encouraged DC residents to bring their complaints about city services to the Maryland congressman.
