Ben Nelson says that he knows who started the rumor, and that it may be embarrassing if/when that info comes out. Says, no one threatened him or offered him ANYTHING for his vote.
He's says the abortion issue is not the only thing stopping him from supporting the Senate bill.
He is lying..
Of course he’s going to dispel it. With Chicago politics involved, he values his life.
by definition, he is a politician. They all lie, cheat and steal.
Of course he’s lying.
I’m going to believe a dim-bulb-crat?
As long as he don’t vote for that POS bill, I don’t care if he’s lying about this...
Which has me believing the three independent sources, because if his opposition is greater than one issue, the 0bama goon squad had to pull out the big guns on him.
He’s caved in.
According to Glenn Beck this morning, there are 3 confirmed sources who attest to the threat to Nelson.
Not saying I believed him, just posting.
One of those Hillary? ;)
Sure, I understand, no prob — using your initial post to make my comment.
I really can’t blame him for denying the rumor. The Party would crucify him, at best. But do remember - he basically CAN’T vote in favor of the bill or everybody would think he caved in to the Party.If the rumor is false, I would say that somebody was very smart to set him up from being the last, the 60th senator. If the rumor is true, somebody was a true Patriot for divulging it.
