Democrat Refuses To Join Moment Of Silence For Las Vegas Victims, Calls It “Excuse”

Massachusetts Democrat Seth Moulton was in the news recently for saying his party has not learned the lessons of the 2016 election. Today he’s in the news for refusing to participate in a moment of silence for the victims of the shooting in Las Vegas.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

House Democrat Refuses to Participate in Moment of Silence for Las Vegas Victims

A Democratic congressman announced Monday that he would refuse to honor a moment of silence held in memory of the people murdered in the Las Vegas mass shooting the prior night.

Police say that at least 50 people were killed and hundreds more were injured when a man opened fire on the crowd at a country music festival from his hotel room. The shooter, identified as local 64-year-old man Stephen Paddock, is not believed to have any religious or political motivation.

In response, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton (D.) said he would refuse to participate in a House of Representatives moment of silence.

He needs to realize that a moment of silence for victims in a situation like this is necessary.

It’s not about him.
