Kansas Democrat apologizes for raising money off two deputies' deaths

A Kansas congressional candidate apologized Monday for sending out an email about the deaths of two Wyandotte County sheriff’s deputies that led to a fundraising page.

Brent Welder, who is vying for the Democratic nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder, sent out a campaign email Saturday that sought to link the deaths of two deputies in Kansas City, Kan., to the larger gun control debate and to use it as an opportunity to criticize the incumbent Republican.

Deputies Patrick Rohrer and Theresa King were shot while transporting a suspect near the county courthouse on Friday. The investigation is ongoing, but investigators think the suspect may have obtained one deputy’s gun and used it to kill the two deputies.

Welder noted that his campaign office, which is near the courthouse, went into lockdown after the shooting.

2. So ... local Dems hold each other accountable over $100 in donations ...

And the GOP nationally, as a whole, says SWEET FUCK ALL when their hero Drumpf sells out the entire COUNTRY for a $500,000,000 contribution from the Chinese Government to his Luxury Resort Property in SE Asia, putting 10's of Millions into his own family's pocket in exchange for allowing Chinese Government Spy Phones to wash up on the world's shores, against the advice of professionals in his OWN admin?

Yeah ... there's no double standard for D vs R, at ALL.

Also, both parties are pretty much the same ...

BTW, anyone actually HEARD of this conveniently-labeled 'Labor Attorney'? What are his actual bona-fides?
