THIRTY REPUBLICANS voted to allow corporations to become an extension of our court system in October of 2009. They voted to give Wall Street corporations the power to arbitrate rape cases outside a US Court of law. Don’t take my word for it, look up the bill yourself.(Amendment number 2588, H.R. 3326)
THE GANG OF THIRTY WHO VOTED AGAINST GANG RAPE VICTIMS AND FOR THE RIGHT OF WALL STREET CORPORATIONS TO TRY RAPE CASES IN THEIR CEO’S OFFICES. And a few choice comments from Emma about them:
Sen. Lamar Alexander [R, TN] Nay Well no surprise here. Lamar Alexander is the same jackass who said on Face the Nation that he still support Randy Paul in spite of Paul’s comments that he would like to turn back the clock on the Civil Rights bill.
Sen. Saxby Chambliss [R, GA] Nay Like all the other pigs, Chambliss’s piggery is not limited to excluding young female rape victims from their constitutional rights. On the don’t ask don’t tell law [It’s ok for homos to serve and die in our military as long as they keep their mouths shut.] Chambliss “expressed his concern that repealing the rule would pave the way for allowing “alcohol use, adultery, fraternization, and body art” in the military” Sen. Thomas Coburn [R, OK] Nay Are you kidding? if the is re-elected then the people of Oklahoma are brain dead. Coburn is a member of the religious cult, the FAMILY he assisted in negotiating the bribe paid to Ensigns lover’s family. He cares about life and he votes to uphold the rights of corporate America over those of a young woman who had been gang raped and then held prisoner by Halliburton?
Sen. John Cornyn [R, TX] Nay This man is such a whore for the RNC that if they told him to cut off his head he would ask when. Sen. Michael Crapo [R, ID] Nay another pig republican who supports corporate rights over those of a young rape victim. Sen. Jim DeMint [R, SC] Nay Carolina like his buddies he prefers Wall Street to the Constitutional Rights of young women. Middle Class.org gives DeMint an F for his voting record for every single year that he has held office.
Sen. John Ensign [R, NV] Nay Well what do you expect from a poor little rich boy whose daddy owns Las Vegas Casinos? Ensign’s mommy and daddy paid off Sonny boy’s lover and her family with a $100,000 bribe.
Sen. Judd Gregg [R, NH] Nay And yes, this is the same jackass who, if Obama and his corporate centrist Clinton regurgitated Congress had gotten their way would have been a member of the Cabinet. If you recall, Gregg accepted then position and then turned it down—most likely he NEVER intended to serve on Obama’s cabinet. He just want to embarrass Obama.
Sen. James Inhofe [R, OK] Nay This is the guy who thinks that it is just fine to throw the Geneva Conventions in the toilet. He said that he was more outraged by the outrage regarding Abu Ghrab that he was the inhumane treatment of the prisoners. No surprise that he would think it is just fine for a bunch Halliburton employees to rape a young woman and instead of the perpeterators having justice in a US court, allowing Halliburton lawyers to be her court..
Sen. John Isakson [R, GA] Nay He blathers on about how he supports life and then he throws away the rights of a young woman who has been gang-raped in favor of Halliburton’s right to hold their own Kangaroo court.
Sen. Pat Roberts [R, KS] Nay Another big evangelical hypocrite Republican piehole who doesn’t think that women even deserve to have access to our court system for acts of violence against their bodies—that’s are real Christian attitude, now isn’t it?
Sen. Richard Shelby [R, AL] Nay Sen. John Thune [R, SD] Nay How could John Thune, an evangelical Christian with two daughters, Brittany and Larissa, listen to the testimony of Jamie Leigh Jones and choose to deny her the right to full representation in our courts? I wonder how Mr. Thune would have voted if one of his daughters were gang-raped by 7 men. I wonder if he would still have thought that it was ok to leave her up to the mercy of Halliburton’s kangaroo court? Sen. David Vitter [R, LA] Nay Are you kidding? This guy has his name in the DC Madams black book. No surprise here that he would vote to support a corporation’s rights over those of a young female rape victim.
