Rep. Issa: convene hearings to investigate the ties between violence and our national political dialogue

While no one knows for sure what drove Jared Loughner to commit this heinous act, we do know that the toxic political discourse in this country today- candidates talking about “second amendment remedies”, news networks featuring anti-government conspiracy theorists, and national political figures like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin describing themselves as “progressive hunters” and urging followers to “reload”- lays the groundwork for this kind of violence. We shouldn’t stand for it.

It has to stop. Join me and the Courage Campaign in calling on Rep. Darrell Issa, the Chairman of the House Investigations and Oversight Committee, to investigate the ties between violence and increasing calls for it in our national political dialogue.
