Toomey Willfully Attempted To Undermine National Security By Signing Iran Letter Earlier This Month
Earlier this month, 47 Republican senators signed on to a dangerous letter that undermined sensitive negotiations with Iran all in the name of scoring partisan political points. The senators who signed the letter, including Pat Toomey, were slammed by editorial boards across the country for their reckless decision to play politics with national security.
In Toomey’s home state, the Philadelphia Inquirer called it a counterproductive “act of political theatre,” while the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote, “The senators who signed the letter should be ashamed.”
But Toomey isn’t ashamed of his reckless decision, and this week he took his reprehensible actions one step further. Toomey is nowraising money off the very Iran negotiations that he willfully attempted to undermine by signing on to the reckless letter.
“It’s shocking that any United States Senator would do something as reckless as cozying up to Iran in the name of scoring partisan political points, but to fundraise off of sensitive negotiations after trying to undermine them is unacceptable,” said Justin Barasky, DSCC Communications Director. “Pennsylvania deserves better than a senator who puts his own reelection ahead of national security and fundraises off of sensitive negotiations to fund his campaign.”
