Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.
I decided to see just much interest they display on their websites for the Benghazi investigation - since, according to the official statements, the Democrats would have LOVED to stay and listen to the parents, but, alas, they just HAPPENED to have these scheduling conflicts.

AMAZINGLY, the link to a puff piece about the Rep. receiving an award from the Association of Americans Living Overseas doesn't work - but if you click here, it will. Wonder how those Americans who DIED in Benghazi feel about her not having the guts to listen to their parents talk about how the administration failed them - AND lied about it - AND are STILL lying about it.
Inscribed on the award is a message that reads, “In Gratitude For Her Unfailing Support For the Rights of Americans Living and Working Overseas.”
Well, Unfailing Support EXCEPT for those people who died in the Embassy attack. Ya know, the peons who don't count.
- Rep. Jackie Speier (CA-12) - aside from the Ranking Member Elijah Cummings, she's the ONLY one that stayed.
The above statement on Speier's page is the single most substantive that I was able to find. I give her credit for the support in it.
No Search function on his website
Names include links to their websites - DO GIVE THEM A SHOUT-OUT, won't you? Let them know how you feel about their COWARDICE in leaving the room. AND maybe you can ask those that have NO RESULTS in the search for the term "Benghazi" why that is.
