Liberal Texas U.S. Congressmen Pete Gallego, Joaquin Castro, Lloyd Doggett, and Henry Cuellar have been very silent about the recent Obama administration scandals.
For example, the IRS has been targeting Tea Party groups, anti-abortion and other conservative groups by holding up their applications for tax exemptions, harassing them with questions, and leaking their donor lists to political opponents. However, all four liberal south Texas Congressmen (Gallego, Castro, Doggett and Cuellar) have yet to make a comment or utter a peep about the issue. Apparently, they ignore the fact that they have Tea Party members in their districts.
These same congressmen have also been silent regarding the Justice Department’s subpoena of news media records, and Attorney General Eric Holder’s apparent misleading testimony to Congress. Whereas some congressmen are demanding answers and accountability from Holder, they haven’t said anything.
There is also the latest black eye for the IRS where the agency provided Congress a video of the IRS workers practicing their dance moves. Again there is only silence from the “Fab Four”. This comes after two previous videos which show agency workers in a parody of the “Star Trek” and “Gilligan’s Island” TV shows. There was no comment about those two videos either.
As for the Benghazi, the “Fab Four” congressmen not said anything about what many now openly describe as a full-blown cover-up related to the terrorist attack on September 11, 2012. What we have here is the death of four brave Americans, and a subsequent cover-up for the purposes of maintaining political power… and these four congressmen say nothing.
Based on their silence, we can only conclude that they are either not interested in doing their job for the people they represent, or they are playing politics by being silent.
Gallego, Castro, Doggett and Cuellar have been quick to defend the Obama Administration on other issues. They support amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and they don’t believe there is a spending problem that has led America to a $16 trillion dollar deficit. Cuellar went so far as blame the Tea Party for the down grade in the nation’s credit rating last year.
What is apparent is that all four congressmen do not represent conservative constituents in their districts. They support liberal issues, tow the line for the Democratic Party, and defend the Obama Administration’s policies, but what about find out the truth on these scandals and bring about a justice resolution? What about upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States?
The voters and citizens in their districts should hold them accountable. Either they represent all of the citizens in their district or only certain ones. Either they upholding the Constitution or they are only interested in defending their Party.
There are sins of commission, such as Eric Holder lying to Congress about his knowledge of investigating reporters, and sins of omission such as these four congressmen and their lack of interest in cleaning up the scandalous behavior of Obama Administration officials.
Gallego, Castro, Doggett, and Cuellar need to stop playing politics and do their job in representing all of their constituents because their silence is deafening…and revealing.
