From the Washington Blade 12/6/07:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) Thursday morning acquiesced to requests by House Democratic leaders to drop a gay and transgender inclusive hate crimes bill from the National Defense Authorization Act, a knowledgeable Capitol Hill source said.

Frank attempted to defend House Democrats as follows:
“House Democrats tell me, ‘Of course I support the hate crimes bill, but don’t tell me to vote for the war,’” Frank said.

“They’re saying why are you asking me to vote for the war in order to vote for this,” he said.

Where were Frank's criticisms of the Democratic Party "leadership" including war funding? Why was war funding included in the Defense Authorization in the first place? Democrats keep saying they are against the war, yet both Democratic-controlled houses of Congress keep voting to fund it.

Frank was more interested in defending removing hate crimes protections from the Defense Authorization bill than condemning the inclusion of war funding in it.

As usual, Frank is putting partisan interests ahead of the queer and peace movements.

  2. Harry Reid is a sellout so he isn't a surprise, but it makes no sense why Kennedy and Frank would cave to something they claim to support.

     
  3. WE have an urgent need right now to help Wexler and the House judiciary committee who want to have Impeachment hearings but are being stymied by the DIMs - they are asking for the netroots to help.

    please see bluebloggin.com for a detailed post, with links. I also have a post but it doesn't come close to all one needs to know like bluebloggin does. Please pass this along..Its one of the most important events of the last week. Major newspapers colluded in the subversion of our democracy - by refusing to run the OP EDITORIALS submitted to them by the House Committee.

    thanks for passing this along - in email to friends , to any who will hear you. Its quite urgent.

    PS visualize IMPEACHMENT. as BTC would say.
