Arizona congressmen on FISA

Bush’s attempt to temporarily amend the FISA law passed the House last night (227 to 183), with 41 Democrats voting with the Republicans to allow Bush & Gonzalez continue their attack on civil liberties. Only two Republicans voted against the measure.

The voting record of the Arizona representatives is as follows:

Republicans

Renzi, Franks, Shadegg, Flake - all "Yea"

Democrats

Pastor, Grijalva, Giffords - all "Nea"

Mitchell - "Yea"

Harry Mitchell should be ashamed of himself and certainly shouldn’t be supported by progressive voters in Arizona in 2008, those very same voters who campaigned hard for him last year.
