In Passing

The list: Republicans voting for S.160

S.160 : A bill to provide the District of Columbia a voting seat and the State of Utah an additional seat in the House of Representatives.
Contrary to the Constitution on its face (Justice Department lawyers agree,[1] although Eric Holder doesn’t want to hear it[2]), designed to give the House two more guaranteed Democrat votes.  Sponsor: Joe Lieberman,[3] 19 co-sponsors including three Republicans.

So which Senate RINOs voted for this piece of trash?

Usual suspects:
Susan Collins (R-ME)  [score so far: 2]
Olympia Snowe (R-ME)  [score so far: 5]
*Arlen Specter (R-PA)  [score so far: 5]

*Orrin Hatch (R-UT)  [score so far: 2]
Richard Lugar (R-IN)
*George Voinovich (R-OH)  [score so far: 2]

(WaPo link via Instapundit.)

*  Gets one “bonus point” for being a Republican co-sponsor.  Orrin Hatch probably deserves an extra stupidity point, as his “price” was an extra House seat for Utah... until the next census.

[2]  Note how the Post calls S.160 an “historic D.C. voting rights bill.”  Not much spin there!

[3]  Connecticut AGAIN!
