Scot-Free

November 18, 2008

From the NY Times:

“Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent from Connecticut, was allowed to keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Tuesday despite his support for Senator John McCain in the presidential campaign.

Democratic senators voted instead to oust Mr. Lieberman from the Environment and Public Works Committee, where he had been chairman of a subcommittee. That penalty was a slap on the wrist compared with the prospect of losing the homeland security leadership post.

‘He’s part of this caucus,’ the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, said after the Democratic caucus voted behind closed doors in the old Senate chamber off the Capitol Rotunda. ‘We are not looking back. We are looking forward.'”

Total bullshit. They reward this guy for campaigning against their own candidate, and more or less calling him a traitor. This should be completely unacceptable.
