Significant Opposition to Gonzales

Alberto Gonzales was confirmed as the next US Attorney General on Thursday. Let the torture-fest begin!

No Republican voted against Gonzales, though Senator Burns (R-MT) did not vote.

Three Democrats did not vote, including Inouye (D-HI), and Sens. Baucus (D-MT) and Conrad (D-ND), both of whom were busy fighting Bush's Social Security propaganda efforts in their home states.

Five Democrats voted in favor of torture. They are Landrieu (D-LA), Pryor (D-AR), Bill Nelson (D-FL), Ben Nelson (D-NE), Salazar (D-CO), and Lieberman (D-CT). To Connecticut Democrats, if Lieberman has a Democratic primary opponent, give them your vote, your time and your money. It's time we got a real Democrat in office.

And now, the good guys... Democrats who opposed Alberto Gonzales.

Today I had the opportunity to thank Senator Kerry for his votes against Rice and Gonzales. I will have more details on my trip to Boston later.
