Politico reports that Debbie Mucarsel-Powell and Donna Shalala “declined to criticize [Karen] Bass directly” over her comments lamenting Castro’s death now that she is being floated as a possible Veep pick for Joe Biden.
Donna and Debbie also refused to denounce Bernie Sanders’ candidacy when the socialist praised Castro.
And there was the photo of them with Castro sympathizer, Danny Glover.
And Shalala even held a campaign event with Rep. Barbara Lee, a known Castro supporter.
Strange behavior for Congresswomen who represent thousands of exiles who have suffered under the violent Castro regime.
NRCC Comment: “Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell consistently choose appeasing their socialist base rather than condemning Fidel Castro sympathizers.” –NRCC Spokeswoman Camille Gallo
