Democrat Tom Harkin supported the Marxist Sandinistas in Nicaragua.

The photo: Harkin and John Kerry aided Marxist Sandinista Dictator Daniel Ortega while Ortega was enslaving the Nicaraguan people.

“…in April 1985 Harkin and fellow neophyte Senator John F. Kerry (D-Massachusetts) flew to Nicaragua…to give propaganda support to its Marxist rulers only days before a scheduled congressional vote on President Ronald Reagan’s requested aid for Nicaragua’s anti-Communist freedom fighters. After embracing Daniel Ortega in front of news cameras, Harkin and Kerry flew back to Washington with a document signed by Ortega in which the latter claimed to be “non-aligned” between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. (But years earlier Ortega’s brother Humberto had declared: “We [Sandinistas] are anti-Yankee, we are against the bourgeoisie…we are guided by the scientific doctrine of the revolution, by Marxism-Leninism.” Humberto Ortega also had said that the Sandinistas intended to “crush” all who dissented from their rule.)

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives, lobbied by Harkin and Kerry, voted against giving aid (as requested by President Reagan) to the anti-Communist Contras…[T]he very moment the vote against President Reagan’s request was taking place, Daniel Ortega was aboard a Soviet airliner flying to Moscow to pledge his allegiance to the Soviet Union.”
