Rep. Rosa DeLauro: Still Hangin’ With the Connecticut Communists

I have written previously of Rep. Rosa DeLauros’s close ties to the Connecticut Communist Party.

Rosa DeLauro is one of Congress’ highest ranking Democrats. She is particularly close to another long time friend of communist causes, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. It appears that one the Democratic Party’s most influential legislators, Rep. DeLauro, still thinks it is appropriate to work closely with Marxist-Leninists. Rep. DeLauro is very close to Connecticut Communist Party leader Joelle Fishman, the daughter-in-law of late Soviet spy and Communist Party USA activist Victor Perlo.
Joelle Fishman also heads the Communist Party’s Political Action Commission, the Party body charged with pushing the Communist agenda through the Democratic Party. As DeLauro has been in charge of appointing Democratic Congressmembers to various Congressional Committees, she has been in a position to move the Communist Party’s many friends in Congress onto Committees that best serve the communist’s goals.
Has Joelle Fishman ever tried to influence her friend Rep. DeLauro in these decisions? Perhaps some brave journalist should put the question to Rosa  DeLauro?
Rep. DeLauro’s latest public brush with the Connecticut Communist Party occurred only a few weeks ago. On August 8, 2011, Connecticut AFL-CIO, (which is led by Communist Party sympathizer John Olsen) faith-based groups, community leaders and organizations in the We Are One coalition, coordinated a roundtable discussion Monday with DeLauro, of New Haven, at the Second Star of Jacob church on Chapel Street.
