Thanks to protestors in the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes, we still do not know where Rep. Kennedy and Rep. Kline of Minnesota stand… which is a development, sort of. (Thanks to G.P. for the post.)
According to a story that appeared in the Minneapolis Start Tribune, Rep. Kennedy's office may have let the cat out of the bag. A Kennedy field representative told a group of protestors during a rally at his St. Cloud office that the Congressman did indeed vote for the DeLay Rule. But when contacted by the paper, the chief of staff of the congressman disputed the account and said the charges made by the protestors were “politically motivated.” (Gees… that sounds awfully familiar!) When the paper asked if they could interview the staffer who supposedly made that claim, his office said that that would be against company policy.
Rep. Kline’s office still won’t say how he voted but are ok with saying that the member is “perfectly comfortable” with the rule change. Way to take a stand!
Perhaps the Daily DeLay is not the only one keeping score. Maybe this man is.
