More Of Those Republicans Morals

Richard Shelby - Re-elected Senator from Alabama

At least the Republicans are going to keep us safe from terrorist...right? Remember this gem from Shelby?

"Federal investigators concluded that Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.) divulged classified intercepted messages to the media when he was on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, according to sources familiar with the probe."

Senator Shelby doesn't so much care about people as say...oh I don't know...the flag.

"Voted YES on ending special funding for minority & women-owned business. This legislation would have abolished a program that helps businesses owned by women or minorities compete for federally funded transportation. Status: Cloture Motion Rejected Y)48; N)52"

"Voted YES on prohibiting same-sex marriage. The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA): Vote to prohibit marriage between members of the same sex in federal law, and provide that no state is required to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Define 'marriage' as 'between one man and one woman"

"Voted NO on prohibiting job discrimination by sexual orientation. Would have prohibited job discrimination based on sexual orientation. Status: Bill Defeated Y)49; N)50; NV)1 "

"Supports anti-flag desecration amendment.Shelby sponsored a Constitutional Amendment: Supports granting Congress power to prohibit the physical desecration of the U.S. flag. Proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States authorizing the Congress to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States"

I think we all understand it's way more important to protect the symbol of the flag than actual people. Gee, I sure do feel good about all these "moral" Republicans we elected.
