Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Lissa Lucas is a Democrat running for a state House seat in West Virginia's District 7. Part of her campaign's goal is to challenge the stranglehold of the fossil fuel industry on the state's politics. To the chagrin of the West Virginia House of Delegates, she stood on the floor and read off corporate donors and their legislator recipients. Republican Delegate John Shott, who was overseeing the hearing, took offense at Lucas's reading of publicly available campaign finance data, equating it to a personal attack. "This is not personal comments," she replied. It is a personal comment and I'm gonna call you out of order if you talk about individuals on the committee. So if you would just address the bill. If not, I'll ask you to please step down," he said to her. She continued to list off donors, her microphone was cut off, and legislative security was called to remove her from the chamber.
