Sen. Dole in rare company

The recommendations of the 9/11 Commission just finally passed the Senate, after five years of the report being ignored. Only eight senators voted against it, one of them being North Carolina’s Elizabeth Dole.

Dole continually claims to be in the party of National Security, yet she voted against screening cargo, against protecting potential terrorist [targets] and all of the other security measures in the bill.

She continues to work as an obstructionist in the Senate and is clearly bad for North Carolina. Let’s not forget how she votes when she asks us to vote next November.
