Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito is not LOLing at this listicle.
Ms. Mark-Viveirto, a liberal Democrat, slammed the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee and its Chairman Bob Goodlatte for using .gifs—animated images—from movies and television shows in a press release posted online promoting the GOP’s immigration plan.
“Chairman Goodlatte ought to be ashamed that the House Judiciary Committee would put out such an utterly mindless press release that trivializes such a serious topic, which also manages to demean the institution of Congress and women in the process,” Ms. Mark-Viverito said in a .gif-free statement to the Observer.
