Not a bunch to miss a good opportunity to exploit dead children for political purposes, the Sacramento Bee‘s editorial page used this week’s high school shooting in Florida to attack Republican members of Congress running for re-election in California.
“To that end, here’s a closer look at the hearts and prayers of all the member$ of the California congre$$ional delegation, via the campaign money they’ve accepted from gun right$ organization$, led by the National Rifle A$$ociation. The Center for Responsive Politics compiled the data, as of the end of 2017:
Ken Calvert, R-Corona: $147,166
Ed Royce, R-Fullerton: $109,120
Tom McClintock, R-Elk Grove, $95,156
Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield: $86,850
Jeff Denham, R-Turlock, $62,900

Paul Cook, R-Apple Valley, $16,100

The Bee excused Democrats. It also has produced no evidence to date that the NRA or law-abiding gun owners had anything to do with the tragedy.
You have to wonder if the elite media is really rooting for more school shootings.
