Today’s Letter – Senator Stevens, RIP

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

I just heard that former Republican Senator Ted Stevens died today in a plane crash. I hope you get a moment to remember the achievements of this long-time politician.

  • He had a zero rating with the Human Rights Campaign.
  • He voted against adding sexual orientation to the definition of “hate crime” in 2001.
  • He opposed the Employment Non-discrimination Act (ENDA).
  • He voted in favor of the hateful “Federal Marriage Act” in both 2004 and 2006.
  • He opposed the Mathew Sheppard act.
  • He had a 14% rating on supporting minorities through affirmative action.

It seems that the Big Tent party got a little smaller today.

Sincerely,

Advertisements
