Readers of The 4PM sided with the House Freedom Caucus against Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas., in Thursday’s poll.
According to viral footage from a campaign event over the weekend, Crenshaw seemed to suggest that members of the House Freedom Caucus, an “America First” congressional alliance, are “grifters.”
44% of readers identified as “Team Crenshaw,” joining the likes of conservative blogger Wayne Dupree.
Anyone getting angry that Crenshaw is calling out grifters in the conservative movement need to check themselves. We've known that for a while now. They know how to use code words to get your money. They don't legislate, but they do act for the cameras
He's right on this…

For his part, Crenshaw has sought to squash any beef, noting on Twitter that he “didn’t mention a single person by name.”
