Cop-Killer's Caucus (St. Denis, France, names street in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal and 31 Ds approve)
Opinion Journal ^ | 12/7/06 | James Taranto - BOTW

Posted on 12/09/2006 10:45:18 AM PST by NormsRevenge

The House yesterday passed a resolution "condemning the decision of St. Denis, France, to name a street in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the convicted murder [sic] of Philadelphia Police Office Danny Faulkner." The vote was 368-31, with 8 members voting "present." Here's a list of what one might call the Cop-Killer's Caucus, the congressmen who voted against the resolution, all Democrats:

The "present" votes came from Sam Farr (Calif.), Al Green (Texas), Luis Gutierrez (Ill.), Sheila Jackson-Lee (Texas), John Lewis (Ga.), George Miller (Calif.), Janice Schakowsky (Ill.) and Melvin Watt (N.C.). Tellingly, every member of the Pennsylvania delegation who was present voted "yes."

The most disturbing name on the "no" list is that of John Conyers. Granted, this is only a symbolic vote, but is it really a good idea to entrust the chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee to a man who casts a symbolic vote for a cop-killer and against his victim?

Conyers faithfully represents the attitudes of those who elect him.

You can see the wisdom of Conyer Voter mentality in stellar performance of the Detroit Schools and City government.

No surprise. People vote according to their ideology.
The listed people are communists.
