"even more incompetent than we thought"

Michael Ahrens - February 28, 2018

New reporting reveals the DCCC has been ordering candidates not to discuss gun control or single-payer. And progressives are enraged.

Huffington Post: DCCC Advised Candidates Not To Discuss Gun Control Policy Right After Vegas Shooting. “The morning after the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas, a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s press staff warned House candidates and their staffs not to “politicize” the shooting that day. Politicization, according to the DCCC official, included talking about gun violence prevention policy. .. . Ladd Everitt, director of the gun violence prevention group One Pulse for America, described the DCCC email as ‘pathetic.’ Mark Glaze, senior adviser to the group Guns Down, said…‘If the DCCC is willing to give up a key issue and offend virtually every Democrat so as not to bother eight Independents in rural Missouri, they’re even more incompetent than we thought, and Democrats should be very worried about the midterms,’ Glaze said. … Waleed Shahid is a spokesman for the left-leaning Justice Democrats…called Lukaske’s email ‘a slap in the face to the movement’ against gun violence.”

The Intercept: DCCC Internal Polling Presented To Members Of Congress Panned Single Payer Health Care. “The messaging handouts, obtained by The Intercept, made clear where the party wants its candidates to stand when it comes to health care reform — preferably nowhere, but certainly not with single payer advocates. The memo cautions Democrats, … “We need to offer reasonable solutions to improve the law instead of a massive overhaul.’”

This follows the DCCC’s controversial move last week to nuke a liberal Democrat with opposition research. (By the way, she raised over $90,000 in the four days that followed.) 

Former Obama aides are excoriating the DCCC, telling them to “get your sh*t together.” Their fellow liberals aren’t having any of it, either:
