Reminder from October 2005
May 10, 2008
Cornyn’s Shame. Senator John Cornyn has brought shame to the great state of Texas by his vote against the “McCain Amendment”, SA1977. This amendment to the Defense Authorization Act for 2006 would prohibit the torture of persons held by our armed forces. Sen. Cornyn was one of just nine Senators to oppose this amendment, while 90 voted in favor. Was he pandering to the right-wing extremists moneyed interests? Did learn nothing of the principals of this country while on the Texas Supreme Court? If Sen Cornyn’s cohorts in the House prevail in approving torture in the final act, there will be NO moral retribution for our enemies who torture captured American military. The lessons of Abu Graib will return to haunt Sen. Cornyn when he runs for re-election in 2008. He counting on you forgetting all about his shame by then.
