SCOUTING FOR ALL ACT Date: 9-13-00

Bill Number: HR 4892

Votes: For=12 Against=362

Bill introduced by Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D) [6] California Vote to revoke the federal charter of the Boy Scouts of America, because of the Scouts antigay policies. The charter, which was granted to the Scouts in 1916, does not provide the Scouts with any special privileges but is considered a mark of prestige.

Nancy Pelosi is the leading candidate to replace Dick Gephardt as the House minority leader. Pelosi co-signed Rep. Woolsey's July 13, 2000 letter to Bill Clinton calling on him to resign as honorary head of the BSA because of its "anti-gay policies". However, when Woolsey's bill HR 4892 to revoke the Boy Scout's Federal Charter came up for a vote in the House on September 12, 2000, Pelosi voted "present".

Now that's what I call leadership! Way to stand up for your convictions, Nancy!

A bump for you're soon-to-be House Minority Leader. What garbage you Democraps have elected. Note Barbara Lee, a Kali Commie, likewise signed this letter. Even a lefty like Gabby Gephardt wouldn't let her in on matters of national security, so fearful was he that Lee would compromise our nations security! F'ing TRAITOR!!!!! She belongs in irons, not in Congress.

Right. Democrats are on the verge of bringing into a leadership position a woman who feels Boy Scouts parents should be forced to send their teenage sons out on overnight camping trips with active homosexual men, that these men should be talking to our sons about sex, that disgusting and dangerous sexual activities like anal intercourse should be implicitly condoned to our sons. Well - bring her on. That should mean about 10 more Senate seats for the GOP.
