LOL Picture Worth a Thousand Words

Catherine Thompson just updated us on the latest stumble for Rep. Trey Gowdy and his laughable Benghazi committee. Now he’s had to return donations tied to the PAC that ran that anti-Hillary ad with Chris Stevens’ tombstone. Dan Backer ran Gowdy’s own leadership PAC until Gowdy got the Benghazi gig and then left for StopHillaryPac (See the article linked above for the details). So look what turns up in our inbox when you search the StopHillaryPac email and Gowdy’s name. Image after the jump.

Definitely, arms length.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
