CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

The Hill reports:

A top conservative leader criticized former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) for tweeting out a picture of gang members, saying they were House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) “campaign committee.” Bob Vander Plaats, the president and CEO of Iowan conservative group The Family Leader, chastised the former governor on Saturday. Vander Plaats was responding to a tweet from Huckabee on Saturday appearing to link Pelosi with gang members.

The Family Leader, you may recall, was one of the most viciously anti-LGBT groups during Iowa’s battle for same-sex marriage. Vander Plaats himself faced accusations of selling his endorsement during the 2012 presidential campaign.
