Pouting Dems Beg for Money to Defeat AWFUL Republicans on Gun Control

Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 6.58.01 PMSomebody call the waaaaaa-mbulance. We’ve got crying Democrats on the loose and they’re being extra pouty.

Democrats were taking a stand – by having a seat on the House floor and refusing to budge until Republicans agreed to have gun control votes – but they were making a buck too.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which supports House Democrats, sent out a flurry of emails throughout the sit-in, which started before lunch Wednesday and hasn’t stopped yet.

‘We’re emailing you so early because we need to defeat these AWFUL Republicans,’ read one, addressed to supporters from Rep. John Lewis, the Georgia Democrat and civil rights movement veteran, who kicked off the staged protest yesterday.

This morning the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sent out this email, featuring Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, who started the sit-in, which called the Republicans 'AWFUL'

In another email, this one authored by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, she calls the protest’ an historically important moment!’

She calls the Republicans’ actions ‘shameful.’

The GOP tried several times to wrestle back control of the chamber, beginning with Rep. Daniel Webster, R-Fla., gaveling out to go to lunch.

Later, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, called a recess.
