Elizabeth Warren is using the tragic shootings that took place over the weekend to raise money for Democrats who are running for the Senate in 2020.
She has no shame, so this is hardly surprising.

Warren Fundraises for Dem Senate Hopefuls Off Mass Shootings
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) sent a fundraising email Monday on the heels of two mass shootings, urging donations to Democratic Senate campaigns.
Shooters in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, over the weekend killed a combined 29 people, reigniting a fierce debate over gun rights.
Warren, a 2020 presidential candidate, didn’t solicit donations for her campaign, but rather for Sens. Doug Jones (D., Ala.), Tina Smith (D., Minn.), and the eventual Democratic nominees in states holding Senate elections in 2020.
Warren blasted the lack of action on gun control in the Republican-led Senate, lamenting its “inexusable” failure to pick up legislation passed by Democrats in the House expanding background checks and waiting times.
“It’s clear Republicans don’t have the courage to do something about this crisis. We can’t wait for them to act — because they won’t,” she wrote. “If we’re going to address the gun violence epidemic in our country, we need to take back the Senate in 2020. I’ll fight my heart out to make sure Democrats win up and down the ballot in 2020—but if we’re going to beat Republicans and the gun lobby, it’s going to take a grassroots movement.”
Warren is not alone in this ghoulish behavior. The Democratic National Committee is doing it too.

Democratic Party fundraising off mass shootings in El Paso, Dayton
The Democratic National Committee is fundraising off the weekend’s tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, seeking donations for the fight to “prevent gun violence and save lives.”
The DNC sent an email to supporters on Monday, signed by former Rep. Gabby Giffords, encouraging donors to “split” a donation of $10 to $200 between the DNC and Giffords’ PAC.
“Friend,” the email begins, “… We can’t afford to wait another day, or for another massacre to happen in our country, for lawmakers to address this. Yet the defenders of the status quo—the gun manufacturing lobby and every single politician who is paid to defend it—will tell you that horrific acts of violence are beyond our control.”
Will anyone in the media call them out for this?
