Dana Loesch and Bill Hennessy were outside of St. Louis City Hall yesterday demanding that all elected officials in the GOP denounce Republican Candidate Dede Scozzafava in the NY-23 House of Representatives race. Though Scozzafava was selected by voters in the primary, wingnuts around America hate her because she is too moderate for their tastes, and they have urged "real Republicans" to support independent candidate Doug Hoffman.
Loesch and Hennessy, as you can see here, held signs that said, "GOP: Put up or shut up" at the rally. In fact, Loesch said (24:35 in the below video), that she was giving Missouri Representatives Roy Blunt and Todd Akin "until the end of the day" to release a statement against Scozzafava or else, "we are coming for you." She also said earlier (19:00) that if they didn't have the brass to do "what's right," then, "we will vote you out! We will come at you with so much heat, you won't even know how to handle it!" Here's the video
Well, Friday has passed and neither Roy Blunt nor Todd Akin released any statement about the NY-23 race. Let's see if the St. Louis Tea Party really stands by their stated convictions, or whether they are all bluster and no bite. In their own words, let's see whether they "put up or shut up."
