Liberals Spread False Claim That Pence Opposed Funding Katrina Relief


In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, a false story went viral claiming that Vice President Mike Pence opposed funding Hurricane Katrina relief while he was a member of the House of Representatives.

The story originated Tuesday on the left-wing site Daily Kos, where Democratic operative Scott Dworkin wrote a blog headlined, “WATCH: Pence Plead With Congress to Not Fund Hurricane Katrina Relief [sic].”

Included in the post was a video of a House floor speech Pence gave shortly after the disaster hit in 2005

Left-wing outlets like Death and Taxes and ShareBlue likewise reported the story, claiming that “Mike Pence used the Bible to explain why we shouldn’t fund Katrina relief” and that Pence “[bludgeoned] those citizens by attaching his extremist political ideology to disaster relief bills, holding up vital support that was urgently needed.”
