Dozens of Dem. Senators rubber-stamp anti-enviro Bush appointee Gail Norton.
31 Jan 2001

Despite their party's rhetorical opposition to Gail Norton and John Ashcroft, Democratic Senators provided the votes needed to accept Norton, and are poised to do the same with Ashcroft.

Despite their party's rhetorical opposition to Gail Norton and John Ashcroft, Democratic Senators provided the votes needed to accept Norton, and are poised to do the same with Ashcroft.

The following is a list of Democratic Senators who voted for Norton:

--------------

AKAKA, Hawaii

BAUCUS, Montana

BINGAMAN, New Mexico

BREAUX, Louisiana

BYRD, West Virginia

CANTWELL, Washington

CARNAHAN, Missouri

CARPER, Delaware

CONRAD, North Dakota

DASCHLE, South Dakota

DODD, Connecticut

FEINGOLD, Wisconsin

FEINSTEIN, California

INOUYE, Hawaii

JOHNSON, South Dakota

KOHL, Wisconsin

LANDRIEU, Louisiana

LINCOLN, Arkansas

MILLER, Georgia

MURRAY, Washington

NELSON, Florida

NELSON, Nebraska

REID, Nevada

You might want to refer to this list the next time the Democrats start telling us how much they care about the environment. Or you may find it handy when the first one of these Senators trys to blame the Green Party for Gail Norton's anti-environmental initiatives!

Maybe a few of those Democratic voters gripped by mindless partisanship will wake up to see the truth of the American One Party System.

SOURCE: I received the list from John McGreivey, who got them from the Roll Call (but the comments above are mine, so don't blame him!).

His web page contains a "Wall of Shame" with this list, as well as comments on some of these Senators' positions on Ashcroft:
