(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) As Ohioans struggle with toxic chemical spills that could leave thousands displaced or sick, the state’s Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown took a trip to Hollywood to raise funds for a future campaign.
While the people of East Palestine dealt with the potential destruction of their homes, Brown hob-knobbed with Hollywood elites last Saturday, partnering with leftist fundraiser Jill Goldman, who rightly called Brown a “progressive champion” because of his opposition to gun rights and LGTB-activism, Breitbart reported.
“If you know me you know I have been a big fan of Sherrod’s for years!!” Goldman wrote on Instagram. “Sherrod is a progressive champion who wins in a tough state like Ohio because Ohioans know he fights for them in the workplace.”
According to Goldman, Brown is especially good at duping blue collar Americans into voting for him.
“His Dignity of Work message enables him to reach those Trump voters even though he has been pro-choice his whole career, gets an F from the NRA and has been for marriage equality since he voted against DOMA in the 199os,” she added.
Though Fox News Digital asked Brown’s campaign team why he did not visit East Palestine, but instead went to California, they did not respond.
His campaign website notes that he did talk to bureaucrats in the swamp about the destructive train wreck.
“We are going to get this community answers and we are going to make sure they have the help they need,” Brown promised before skipping off to fundraise in Hollywood.
Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Ohio, was decidedly more concerned for the people of his state.
“They’re not getting the answers that they need and want,” Johnson said. “The rail company, Norfolk Southern, did not show up at the town hall meeting last night for them to be able to ask those questions.”
“There are lots and lots of questions,” he concluded.
