On the same day that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was finally released from the hospital to his family, Mo Brooks sent out a mass email pleading for $50,000 in campaign donations—to fund his widely criticized ad that uses audio from Scalise’s shooting. Brooks’ ad was quickly condemned by Scalise’s office.
Brooks skipped a vote to assist the Capitol Police Officers who were wounded in last month’s shooting. According to Brooks’ campaign manager, Brooks missed the vote “because he was campaigning” and that it “was not an accident.”
