Texas Congressman Solicits Lobster Donations To "Help Feed Starving Democrats"

Texas Republican Congressman Steve Stockman is poking fun at DNC chair Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz by attempting to solicit “emergency shipments” of “lobster, foie gras, and caviar” for her office. The post comes in response to comments the DNC Chair made at a hearing Tuesday saying staffers were getting “priced out” of “a high quality meal.” The website Legistorm shows few of Wasserman-Schultz’s staff have six-figure salaries.
