Democratic Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy is fundraising off the shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The senator who elevated himself in connection with the Sandy Hook shooting is also taking the lead on Democrat gun-control advocacy with party leaders in the aftermath of Las Vegas.
Murphy is up for re-election in 2018.
Murphy’s Monday email sought contributions for Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, Everytown and Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. When supporters clicked through to the Act Blue donation site, there was a fourth organization splitting contributions, Murphy’s re-election campaign.
If you cannot resist the compulsion to raise money for your re-election as the dead are being identified, just do it. Don’t cloak your grimy impulses behind other groups on a solemn day.
