Rep. Brian Mast, R-Palm City, says wounded vets would gladly accept the tickets of Democrats boycotting Donald Trump’s inauguration.

WASHINGTON — With dozens of congressional Democrats — including U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings of Delray Beach — boycotting Friday’s inauguration of Donald Trump, freshman U.S. Rep. Brian Mast has an idea for their tickets.

 

“I know well more than 50 wounded veterans – men and women who sacrificed tremendously to protect the democracy that allows for this peaceful transfer of power – who would love seats,” said Mast, R-Palm City, an Army combat vet who lost his legs after a bomb blast in Afghanistan.

 

“If these members of Congress do not want to go themselves, I hope they will find it in their hearts to give their seat to a veteran who has risked their life to make it possible for the rest of us to choose whether or not to go.”
