Fundraising the Dead

As the House works to form a special committee to investigate what led to the death of four Americans at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, Republicans are under fire for using the tragedy to raise campaign dollars. But when pressed, Speaker John Boehner repeatedly refused to denounce the effort. "Our focus is in getting the answers to those families who lost their loved ones, period,” Boehner replied three times when asked if he thought the incident should be used as a fundraising tool.
