The Case Against Cleaver, Part 3: Democratic Socialists Of America

I should have mentioned this in part one, but it totally slipped my mind.

Emanuel Cleaver is one of 70 House members who caucus with Democratic Socialists of America. They proudly made the announcement in their October 2009 newsletter (but it’s been conveniently scrubbed for the election season).  The list is also posted on This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone in light of the fact that on his return from Cuba,  he had nothing but praise for Castro’s island paradise.

Here, via Gateway Pundit, is the list:
