Rep. Clarke's Partners with Anti-Obama Representative Darrell Issa
From Feb. 2018
Congresswoman Clarke announced the launch of a Smart City Caucus that she will co-chair with Darrell Issa.
Of all the people to reach out to across the aisle, Darrell Issa might be one of the worst choices imaginable for Rep. Clarke, and she should know better than to align herself with him.
This is a man who proudly boasted of using his Congressional Office to undermine Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign; shut off Rep. Elijah Cummings's microphone to silence him in Oversight Committee hearings; and called President Obama 'one of the most corrupt presidents in modern times.
In the era of Trump, we need Democrats who fight tooth and nail for our values, not pander to right-wing extremists like Issa who helped Trump get elected in the first place.
