Rep. Rosa DeLauro: Still Hangin’ With the Connecticut Communists
Rosa DeLauro is one of Congress’ highest ranking Democrats. She is particularly close to another long time friend of communist causes, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. It appears that one the Democratic Party’s most influential legislators, Rep. DeLauro, still thinks it is appropriate to work closely with Marxist-Leninists. Rep. DeLauro is very close to Connecticut Communist Party leader Joelle Fishman, the daughter-in-law of late Soviet spy and Communist Party USA activist Victor Perlo.
Joelle Fishman also heads the Communist Party’s Political Action Commission, the Party body charged with pushing the Communist agenda through the Democratic Party. As DeLauro has been in charge of appointing Democratic Congressmembers to various Congressional Committees, she has been in a position to move the Communist Party’s many friends in Congress onto Committees that best serve the communist’s goals.
Has Joelle Fishman ever tried to influence her friend Rep. DeLauro in these decisions? Perhaps some brave journalist should put the question to Rosa DeLauro?
Rep. DeLauro’s latest public brush with the Connecticut Communist Party occurred only a few weeks ago. On August 8, 2011, Connecticut AFL-CIO, (which is led by Communist Party sympathizer John Olsen) faith-based groups, community leaders and organizations in the We Are One coalition, coordinated a roundtable discussion Monday with DeLauro, of New Haven, at the Second Star of Jacob church on Chapel Street.
The event was covered by Joelle Fishman in the Peoples World.
In this video from the event, DeLauro is clearly heard referring to an earlier meeting with “Joelle,” almost certainly a reference to Joelle Fishman.
That one of Congress’ most powerful Democrats should be on such close terms with one of America’s most influential communists should not be surprising.
Many members of Congress have close ties to the Communist Party.
Rosa DeLauro is simply a little more blatant than most…
