In an effort to get more GOP House members to support H.Res.36, the Select Committee for the Benghazi scandal, activists who are involved in keeping this story in the news are urging a "shame campaign."
What this entails is contacting GOP House members on their Twitter and Facebook accounts. These are social networking sites that are fully visible to the public. We want GOP representatives in the House to be ashamed for not supporting a full investigation into the unnecessary deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and two former Navy SEALs who fought to the death trying to fend off the terrorist attackers. Currently, 160 GOP House members out of 234 have pledged support for the committee. We need more of them to pledge support to overcome the objections of House leader Boehner.
A select committee strengthens subpoena powers so that people with knowledge of the attacks, and the subsequent cover-up by the Obama administration will have to come in and testify. Without the subpoena powers, those involved can choose to testify or not, and it's most likely they won't as they fear a backlash from the administration.
Below is a list of links to all GOP House members who have NOT pledged support for a Benghazi Select Committee. Phone numbers to their offices are also listed. Please Tweet them, and engage them on Facebook. We will publicly shame them into supporting the committee which will investigate why help wasn't sent when it could have been to save the four Americans who died brutal, incomprehensible deaths protecting their own. We demand justice for the Benghazi four!
GOP House members are listed in alphabetical order. If there is no link to a congressperson's Twitter or Facebook accounts, then they do not have one.

Update, 4-29-2014: New White House email proves that Susan Rice was prepped to lie about Benghazi, and to tell the American public that it was caused by a video. The list of GOP reps not supporting a select committee has been updated.
Now, Tweet/Facebook your congressperson and tell them to support Hres36, the Select Committee for Benghazi!
