Kucinich to Vote Against Supplemental — 11 Down, 28 to Go

Posted in: Congress

url-2.thumbnail.jpgThe office of Rep. Dennis Kucinich has confirmed that he will vote against the supplemental. That makes 11 Democratic votes to block the passage of the package that includes supplemental funding for the war in Afghanistan, the IMF European bank bailout and the Lieberman suppression of detainee photos amendment. A total of 39 are needed, which means 28 more to go.

As Kagro notes over at Congress Matters, how will the cosponsors of the State Secrets Protection Act (H.R. 984) justify voting for the Lieberman amendment?

Surely anyone who thinks a that the government ought to have to prove its case for exclusion of certain evidence on national security grounds by presenting arguments in camera to a federal judge is going to have a hard time believing that photos that other federal judges order released should be retroactively buried by an act of Congress.

Maybe somebody should ask them. Let us know what they say with the Whip Tool.
