Scott Peters Caved To Liberal Protesters On The Iran Deal In Record Time

Peters with Iran Protesters

On Wednesday, nearly 50 protesters organized by MoveOn.org gathered at Rep. Scott Peters’ (CA-52) district office to urge him to support Obama’s controversial Iran deal. Peters told the group that he planned to announce his position soon and assured them that he was “trying to do the right thing for the country.”

The very next day Peters released an op-ed saying he would support the Iran deal even while admitting that:

“The government of Iran today is a chief sponsor of international terrorism and regularly threatens to obliterate Israel, our most important ally in the
region. By 2013, Iran was only a month away from having enough fissile material for a nuclear bomb. That is unacceptable.”

After months of indecision, even MoveOn.org must have been shocked how quickly Peters caved to their protest.
