All’s Quiet on the Leftward Front

May 6, 2024

POLITICO recently reported on the numerous House Democrats who have yet to say anything about the recent indictment of Rep. Henry Cuellar (TX-28) despite having quite a bit to say about former Rep. Santos. 

Per POLITICO, “The argument is simple, from their view: Republicans moved to clean house and remove a member of their own party — why won’t Democrats?” 

As a reminder, Rep. Dina Titus had this to say about Rep. Santos: “Among the basic requirements for members of Congress is acting with integrity at all times and being honest with one’s constituents” and Rep. Susie Lee said “The facts have come forward and the details are damning. We cannot allow conduct like this to damage our democracy.”

And here is what they said about Rep. Cueller’s recent indictment: *crickets* 

“The House Democrats’ official slogan is ‘people over politics.’ Are they going to subscribe to that or no? Will Reps. Titus and Lee call on Rep. Cuellar to resign?” – NRCC Spokeswoman Delanie Bomar
