OUTLYING PRECINCTS

Jonathan Turley makes the point that several years ago, certain top Dems were intimidated by Bush into quietly going along with Bush's illegal spying activities, and now those same Dems are afraid that they themselves could be held liable for any illegal spying committed by Bush and the Telecomm companies (Turley used the word "collusion".)

Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) told the Rothenberg Political Report that he "would have a hard time voting for the [Democratic] ticket" if Sen. Barack Obama picks former Sen. Sam Nunn (D-GA) as his vice-presidential running-mate. Frank says he made his position clear to the people vetting Obama's potential vice presidential nominees. "The Massachusetts Democrat cites a number of examples of what he calls Nunn's "real record of hostility" toward gays, placing greatest emphasis on Nunn's September 1996 vote against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which failed in the Senate by a single vote."
