Joaquin Castro Reveals Names of Trump Donors

by Daveda Gruber:

Late Monday afternoon, Joaquin Castro, Rep. D-TX, tweeted out names of his own constituents who gave substantial donations to President Trump.

In all, Castro, who also serves as chairman for his twin brother, Juilian Castro’s presidential campaign, posted the names of 44 people and their employers who are donors of the Trump campaign in the San Antonio area.

GOP lawmakers and others contended that Castro was “targeting” the listed donors by tweeting their names to his thousands of followers.

The allegations are quite serious in the aftermath of two horrific shootings over the weekend in El Paso Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Thirty-one people died and many were injured during the senseless murder rampages.

Castro tweeted this:

House Republican Whip LA., Steve Scalise is no stranger to violent attacks after he was shot on June 14, 2017, during a practice session for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity in Alexandria, Virginia.

Scalise tweeted this:

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was not pleased at Castro’s deeds and accused Castro of doxing his own constituents. Cruz expressed his feeling in a tweet, as well:

Nothing that Republican lawmakers or many others, as well, had said seemed to deter Castro from continuing to stand by his putting Trump donors at risk and on Wednesday he was tweeting again.

Using tragedies for political gain is nothing new but taking an extremely heartbreaking loss of life, which we saw unfold this weekend, and turning into a money making political venue has disgusted me.

Putting names on a list to attract criticism and possible hostile actions is appalling.

I’d like to hear your comments, either here or on Twitter to my account @DavedaGruber. Thank you.
