Skip to comments.Senate Confirms Radical Aponte AsAmbassador to El Salvador (A religion concern troll)

Apontes recess appointment expired at the end of the year, but almost every Republican (except for Brown and Collins) united to oppose cloture on her nomination. Aside for the national security concerns, Republicans were concerned that Aponte would promote her radical social agenda in a country where we are trying to develop a close relationship. A while back, Aponte published an opinion piece that called into question the religious and pro-family culture of Salvadorans.
Yesterday, the media reported that Harry Reid would try to bring up cloture on the Aponte nomination once again. I didnt think much of it at the time. After all, why would Republicans drop their objections? Well, evidently 9 Republicans felt it was time to give up. Cloture was invoked earlier today, followed by confirmation via voice vote.
What changed? Marco Rubio lent his support to Aponte in the last minute.

Shame on Rubio...amnesty support (via “The New Dream Act”) and now this.
Sorry for that. The story is on the front page @ redstate.com, but the column itself didn’t offer a direct link for some reason. (Plus, I have virtually no proficiency at posting, but don’t repeat that.)
I’m sorry to hear about Rubio , who was definitely a conservative - until he got elected to the Senate. He’s gotten more liberal with every day in office.
