Newspaper pick-up

Up-to-date vote count on DeLay Rule

Times-Union (Albany, NY) picks up your role, with a focus on Rep. John Sweeney (R-NY), a DeLay Rule supporter. (from Josh Marshall.)


  • A couple of points about your count.

    First, don't hold your breath waiting for a report of how Schrock voted -- he retired after it came out that he was soliciting gay sex from strangers.

    Second, it seems a bit generous to say that Rep. Virgil Goode abstained. He's a lazy representative, who brags to his constituents that he only spends a couple of days in Washington each week. He wasn't in D.C. the day of the vote, as he's not in D.C. on the days of most votes. He did not, in fact, vote, but it's not like he was just unsure about what to do. The guy just doesn't show up to work.

  • Actually, I don't think that he resigned. Googling around, it seems that he simply declared that he wouldn't run for reelection, and he's simply been in hiding ever since.
