Sen. Dean Heller Calls Cancer Patient, He Threw Out of Town Hall, A ‘Democrat Political Operative’

Republican Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada attacked Laura Packard, who has stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma, in a fundraising email.

Heller had Packard removed from a town hall in December 2017 when she dared to question Heller about the future of Obamacare:

Why are you voting for me to lose my health care? Without it I will die?

Heller claimed in a fundraising email that Packard is a “Democratic political operative” because she appeared in a commercial for Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen of Nevada:

One in four Nevadans have a pre-existing condition like I do … and Dean Heller is lying about helping us.

Heller promised in June 2017 that he would not vote for a bill that ended protections for pre-existing conditions, noted CNBC, but did vote a Republican bill that would have allowed states to end protections for those with pre-existing conditions, reported Politifact in June 2018.

Packard slammed Heller on Twitter for attacking her on Oct. 8:
