Republican Rep. Kat Cammack of Florida threw a zinger in the direction of Democratic Virgin Islands Delegate Stacey Plaskett during a Thursday hearing on the weaponization of government.

The U.S. Virgin Islands has a non-voting delegate in the House who serves on committees, but cannot vote.

According to Insider, Epstein was a donor to Plaskett’s campaigns beginning in 2014, when she first won her seat in Congress. Epstein also had his business associates donate to Plaskett, Insider reported. The money helped Plaskett win a razor-close primary in August 2014 against an opponent who was an open critic of Epstein, according to Insider.

In 2018, while trying to raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she secured a $30,000 donation from Epstein, which the DCCC would not accept.

Cammack referenced that during Thursday’s hearing of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, during which Democratic presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy Jr. spoke about being censored for his beliefs.

According to Fox News, Plaskett claimed that Kenney was being supported by what she called “MAGA Republicans,” specifically through a super PAC called Heal the Divide. Kennedy maintained his connection to the super PAC was only superficial, and that he had not endorsed it.

But Cammack used the opening to bring up Plaskett’s ties to Epstein.
