Republicans are shamefully using the death of four Americans to make money. House Speaker John Boehner dodged and weaved when confronted with this.

Asked three times about the propriety of the party’s campaign arm fundraising off the select committee created to investigate the death of four Americans, Boehner repeated different variations of the same line.

“Our focus is on getting the answers to those families who lost their loved ones,” Boehner (R-Ohio) told reporters in the Capitol. “Period.”
Asked again if it is proper for the National Republican Congressional Committee to use this committee money, Boehner said, “Our focus is getting the truth for these four families and for the American people.”…

Visitors to the NRCC web site who clicked on a Benghazi-related post this week were then asked to donate money to “stop Democrats from controlling all of Washington.” An NRCC spokesman said they don’t release statistics for how much money they raise online.

    It’s tricky blasphemous GOP business as usual eh Boehner? Repubs siphoned off $6 Trillion in the GWB’ / Halliburton Cheney bailout costing 4,500 KIA to kill 200,000+ unarmed Iraqi women, babies and kids -who never attacked us, 2 years after ‘The biggest intelligence failure in U.S. History!’

    GOP’s #CashinIn on 4 dead by omitting “GWB’s 11+ Benghazi’s” and the US Military 22 minute response from the first call for help, that retook the Benghazi consulate in 1 hour, saving 30 lives. “Obama Tells O’Reilly He Blames (GOP TV) for Keeping Faux Scandals Alive”

    the republicans doing something like this with an eye toward additional fund raising? say it ain’t so Johnnie! Prove to us it ain’t, let’s make sure that Saint Ronnie of Reagan’s response to Beirut are also looked at, and Little Georgie Bush’s ignoring of warning about 9/11. We know it’s old history
