Matthew - you have twice now threatened to report things that are not true and
which put words in our mouth. And, we are under no obligation to answer your
questions no matter how many cuss words you use or insults you hurl. We won't
return your lack of professionalism with our own. What do I have to do to get
you to stop emailing me?

You and I both know exactly what I was going to report -- and exactly how I
was going to frame it -- and it would have been 100 percent accurate. In
fact, I explained that to you and to Weigel and to everyone else. BTW,
dude, would you grow up, please? Answer the questions. That's your job
as a spokesperson. This is downright the most immature response I've
seen from a flack since EVER.

And, btw, Dave Weigel and tons and tons of other reporters (including
many who work for BuzzFeed) say my style of reporting is brilliant.
"Genius" says one of Ben's reporters to me. So cut the crap, grow up and
answer the questions -- if you're capable of doing so.

It's pretty damned clear, like I said before, what I was going to report. Would you guys
rather not talk about Fast and Furious and instead talk about me?

Dude, you're putting words in my mouth. Seriously, I didn't say I'd report
she had no confidence in him. I said I'd report she wasn't supporting him.
Big difference. Once again, you and I both know that. You know damn well
that's exactly what I was going to report. So cut the shit, would you? Stop
being a two-year-old.

Anyway, so the DNC's official position is that it's "reindeer games" for a
reporter to ask whether its chairwoman believes the president and his AG
-- both of her party -- should apologize to Mexico for a government
operation that led to at least 300 murders in that country when a
congressman from the opposing political party is calling on the president
and AG to do so?

You said reindeer games. Nice try, though.

You and I both know I wasn't putting words in your mouth. And, so, to be clear, the official DNC position
on this question - whether Obama and Holder should apologize to Calderon for the at least 300 murdered
civilians for Fast and Furious -- is that it's "reindeer games"?

I'm a reporter and I want to get to the truth here. But to clarify, you're okay with being quoted in The Daily
Caller bashing Mitt Romney (in my articles, too, nonetheless) but you won't answer questions when it
involved DNC officials?

Oh, Brad, I forgot to add: please answer by 5 p.m. today or I'm reporting you're not answering the question.
Thanks!

Brad,

Now that Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz is on the record on where she stands with regard to whether she
still has confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder, my next question is: Does Chairwoman Wasserman
Schultz agree or disagree with Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert in thinking that President Obama
needs to call Mexican president Felipe Calderon to apologize for the 300 civilians in Mexico who were
murdered with Fast and Furious weapons? Also, does Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz agree or disagree
with Rep. Gohmert in thinking that Attorney General Holder should also call Calderon to apologize for the
program?

For your background:

President Obama and AG Holder have both apologized to Border Patrol agent Brian Terry's family -- the
law enforcement officer who was killed with guns his own government gave to drug cartels through Fast
and Furious. Neither, however, has apologized to Mexican president Felipe Calderon for the 300 civilians
who were murdered as a result of the program, or to any of the families of Fast and Furious victims in
Mexico. Those victims' identities are still unknown. Even so, Holder himself has admitted during
congressional testimony that more people will likely be killed with these weapons his DOJ gave to cartels.
