In casting a vote to repress the Goldstone Report, 344 U.S. Representatives agreed Tuesday to look the other way. 344 U.S. Representatives voted to condemn a report they had not read. 344 U.S. Representatives voted to deny that with our rights as a free nation come responsibilities to uphold integrity and honesty, at least, if not justice.
CODEPINK was at Representative Berman's office to protest the vote on November 3 (Photos). 36 Representatives voted against the Berman amendment, and 27 voted "present," which can be read as a vote of no-confidence.
The roll call is here: http://www.opencongress.org/vote/2009/h/838. Ask your Congressperson why.
