Cornyn’s Shame

September 3, 2008

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) 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 have prohibited 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 Neocons? Did he learn nothing of the principles of this country while on the Texas Supreme Court? Since Sen Cornyn’s cohorts in the House prevailed in approving torture in the final act, there is NO moral retribution for our enemies who torture captured American military. The lessons of Abu Graib and the renditions will return to haunt Sen. Cornyn as he runs for re-election in 2008. He counting on you forgetting all about his shame.
