Dem spox to Cruz staffer: “May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases” [UPDATED]

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Communications Director (!) of the Sacramento, CA Democratic Party, responding to an anti-Obamacare tweet from Ted Cruz staffer Amanda Carpenter (content warning):

After doubling-down on hate, Brauer performed an abrupt about-face and apologized:

Reporter Chris Moody solicited a statement on Brauer’s repulsive comments from the state Democratic Party.  It is simply amazing:

The “problem” with wishing death upon a political opponent’s children, you see, is that it lets “fringe” characters like Sen. Ted Cruz “off the hook.”  Remarkable.

UPDATE – This guy just keeps digging. His responses to, and about, women are especially vile.

UPDATE II – The Sacramento Dems aren’t answering their phones. I called the state party to ask if they think Brauer should be fired, and to challenge them on their official statement. I was transferred to voicemail by the receptionist, who told me the lines were “flooded” and “going crazy right now.” Today might end up being a very bad day for one Allan Brauer.

UPDATE III – Who’s up for some mass murder, while we’re at it?
