Castro and Maduro (Also) Share U.S. Congressional Supporters

Friday, May 30, 2014
This week, 14 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives wrote a letter to President Obama urging him not to sanction Venezuelan officials responsible for human rights violations.

Not surprisingly, the signatories are overwhelmingly the same Members of the Havana travel circuit, who regularly visit Cuba to meet with the Castro brothers and regime officials.

Then, they return to the United States singing the regime's praises, glossing-over human rights abuses and urging "normalization."

They are:

John Conyers (D-MI)
Hank Johnson (D-GA)
Raul Grijalva (D-AZ)
Karen Bass (D-CA)
Barbara Lee (D-CA)
James McGovern (D-MA)
Sam Farr (D-CA)
Chellie Pingree (D-ME)
Keith Ellison (D-MN)
Jan Schakownsky (D-IL)
Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO)
Jose Serrano (D-NY)
Michael Capuano (D-MA)
Peter Welch (D-VT)
