I knew Maxine Waters was going to vote no!

I can't speak to a lot of these (there are some of the usual suspects on the list Frank, Waxman, Clyburn, Kucinich, etc) but Kilpatrick I know of.

The one thing to know about her is that her son is Kwame Kilpatrick, the convicted and ousted Mayor and all around thug of Detroit.

It's always the usual suspects (i.e. losers), isn't it?! [sigh] Remember folks, let's clean House next election!

Thanks for the list JACG. I'll be sure to spread the word at my blog too. ;)

Most of the votes to protect ACORN came from the nuts in the Congressional Black Caucus. That group has become an embarassment to the House of Representatives (which has enough Anglo-Embarassments to choke a horse). The CBC does more damage to race relations in America than even Sharpton and Je$$e Jackson Sr. They do not represent the best interests of individuals in their districts. Instead, they erect racial bogeymen to help deliver votes to the Democrat Party. There are a few exceptions, but overall their records and their rhetoric point to a group of cynical politicians who will exploit race to achieve personal and political goals.
