by Susan Page, Midweek (excerpt)

No surprise that since 1991 Abercrombie has voted with the Democratic Party 92 percent of the time, and in the last Congress 98.5 percent....

But which legislation did he vote “Nay” on when his own Democratic Party (and Republicans) voted “Yea”?

  • Recognizing Israel’s Right to Defend Itself Against Attacks From Gaza, Reaffirming the United States’ Strong Support for Israel, and Supporting the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process.
  • Promoting Antiterrorism Cooperation Through Technology and Science Act.
  • Afghanistan Freedom and Security Support Act
  • Department of Homeland Security Appropriations for fiscal year 2008
  • Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007
  • National Defense Authorization Act (12/5/07)
  • Condemning the Ongoing Palestinian Rocket Attacks on Israeli Civilians, and for Other Purposes (Voted “Present.”)
  • Iran Counter-Proliferation Act of 2007.
  • Reaffirming the Support of the House of Representatives for the Legitimate, Democratically Elected Government of Lebanon Under Prime Minister Fouad Siniora.
  • Expressing the Sense of the House of Representatives Regarding the Government of Syria’s Continued Interference in the Internal Affairs of Lebanon. (Voted “Present.”)
  • Iran Sanctions Enabling Act.
  • Condemning Human Rights Abuses by the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Expressing Solidarity With the Iranian People.
  • Calling on the United Nations Security Council to Charge Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad With Violating the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and the United Nations Charter Because of His Calls for the Destruction of the State of Israel. (Voted “Present.”)
