As reported by, Democrats on Thursday walked out of a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Benghazi – just prior to testimony from parents of the victims.

Democrats refused to hear testimony from the parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, who died in Benghazi along with Glen Doherty and Ambassador Chris Stevens. Committee chairman Darrell Issa tweeted a picture of the Democrats leaving the hearing:Screen-shot-2013-09-19-at-6.31.19-PMThe Democrats’ sordid Benghazi history may explain why Democrats walked out of the hearing before Patricia Smith, who is Sean Smith’s mother, and Charles Woods, who is Tyrone Woods’ father, were to have testified about their sons’ lives and deaths.

Here are the Democrats who walked out of the hearing:

Carolyn Maloney
Danny Davis
Eleanor Holmes Norton
Gerald E. Connolly
Jim Cooper
John Tierney
Mark Pocan
Matt Cartwright
Michelle Lujan Grisham
Peter Welch
Stephen Lynch
Steven Horsford
Tammy Duckworth
Tony Cardenas
William Lacy Clay

To their credit, Elijia Cummings and Jackie Speier remained to hear the testimony. But – as Hillary would say – “What difference does it make?” Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods are still dead.
