From a website that covers the special Senate election in Massachusetts [Emphasis mine]:
Addressing members of Temple Beth Am in Framingham today, U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown criticized U.S. Representative Mike Capuano for his failure to support a 2008 resolution by the U.S. House of Representatives condemning Hamas for rocket attacks against Israel.
In a press release issued Sunday afternoon, The Brown campaign reported that the U.S. House adopted Resolution 951 “condemning the ongoing Palestinian rocket attacks on Israeli civilians by Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist organizations” on March 5, 2008. The measure passed 404-1.
According to the Brown campaign, "Congressman Capuano voted ‘present’ on the resolution, refusing to take a stand on an issue of critical national security for the state of Israel."
Added Brown, “I will never vote ‘present’ when it comes to the war on terror.
The good news is Brown has no chance (although Capuano really doesn’t either — Martha Coakley is the runaway favorite). Still….interesting to see how these kinds of votes get used in campaigns. Why vote No or Present on an AIPAC resolution — all it does is open you up to an attack like this. Also shows how wedded the GOP has become to the Israeli line.
