Via Think Progress:
Shortly before the a crucial Senate vote to expand background checks in gun transactions, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) sent a letter to the mother of a shooting victim claiming that he was “truly sorry” for her son’s death and that “strengthening background checks is something we agree on.” A few days later, he voted to kill the background checks bill.
What, you thought he would actually vote for it even though he said he agreed with it? Really? Hey, I have some nice waterfront property in Tucson that I’d like you to see. Ocean view and everything.
