Kathy Castor's Preference for Dictators

Thursday, April 5, 2012
The Castro dictatorship has tragically engaged in record breaking repression and political arrests.

Peaceful pro-democracy activists, particularly women, are being beaten, dragged through the streets and arbitrarily imprisoned.

Most Members of Congress stand in solidarity with Cuba's courageous pro-democracy movement.

But not U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (D-FL).


A look back through her schedule shows she has a preference for meetings with the Castro dictatorship:

Wednesday, March 16

4:00 pm - Cuban Interest Section
