Sarah Huckabee Sanders Campaigns For Rep. Claudia Tenney Who Said Mass Shooters Are ‘Democrats’
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders campaigned for Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney of New York — who has claimed mass shooters are Democrats — on Nov. 3.
After the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkand, Florida, Tenney told Talk 1300 Radio:
It’s interesting that so many of these people that commit the mass murders end up being Democrats, but the media doesn’t talk about that.
Tenney has been asked about her accurately quoted comments, which she now refers to as “fake news,” notes Mother Jones.
Tenney sent out a fundraising email in April asking supporters to help her “lock them up,” in reference to private citizen Hillary Clinton, former FBI director James Comey, and former attorney general Loretta Lynch who have not been indicted of any crimes.
Tenney reportedly attacked the CEO of the Oneida Nation, Ray Halbritter, as “Spray Tan Ray,” in 2015.
Tenney claimed that Halbritter “isn’t Oneida,” even though Halbritter is a member of the Oneida nation, noted the Utica Observer-Dispatch.
