$1,000 a plate to hear lawmaker “obfuscate”?

Here are the amazing/amusing facts that gave rise to it:
House Majority Leader Rep. Paul Stam is holding a fundraiser  and the subject is voter suppression (aka mandatory voter photo I.D.). Now guess who the featured speaker is?
Why none other that the chair of the House committee that has presided over various efforts to limit voter turnout amongst groups of people disfavored by the far right, Rep. David Lewis .
If the name isn’t ringing any bells, Lewis is the same person Stam referred to in the now infamous, acidentally-recorded House Republican caucus  from last year as someone who can “obfuscate more than anybody I know.”
Sounds like a pretty typical Stam event.
