** 2nd BENGHAZI UPDATE **


SPEAKER BOEHNER APPOINTS REP. TREY GOWDY
AS CHAIR OF SPECIAL BENGHAZI COMMITTEE –



By Lisa Piraneo, Director of Government Relations


As I noted in yesterday’s e-mail, after over 18 months of sustained pressure on federal legislators by you and our other 280,000 grassroots activists – including thousands of office visits, phone calls and e-mails to members of the U.S. Congress – ACT helped get over 182 congressmen (over 80 percent of House Republicans) to co-sponsor Rep. Frank Wolf’s bill creating a Benghazi special Committee.

Due in part to this immense pressure, last Friday House Speaker Boehner announced that he will convene a special Benghazi committee. Yesterday he appointed Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) as its Chair.


Shortly after the Speaker’s announcement last Friday, Congressman Wolf issued the following public statement:



We are very proud of this accomplishment and consider the Speaker’s announcement last week to be one of our biggest victories, to date.

As Brigitte Gabriel always says: When everyone does a little together we accomplish a lot. You – our members – with your 280,000 voices combined make up the powerful engine of our organization.

Sometimes our victories will take time, as the creation of a Benghazi committee has, but you can be sure that if we continue to work together, more achievements are up ahead. Together we ARE making a difference.
