Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, had a sharp response to a New York Times writer who accused him of not supporting the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. NYT contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali blasted Republicans on Twitter Tuesday and attempted to question their patriotism for not backing the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. He also claimed Crenshaw hasn't sponsored the fund's renewal while praising the involvement of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn."Anytime a Republican says they are 'patriots' ask them if they voted to fund the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. Dan Crenshaw," Ali wrote in the now-deleted tweet. "I deleted [the tweet because] Dan Crenshaw supported the Fund in May after being a holdout.
