Joe Scores Near the Bottom on Animal Rights and Anti-Cruelty

The United States Humane Society released its mid-term scorecard on Animal Rights issues. And guess what, Joe Knollenberg rated near the bottom of the pile.
This video is a good example of why animal issues are so important.

The 2007 report scores lawmakers on their floor votes on legislation to crack down on animal fighting, protect wild horses and burros from slaughter, and stop the imports of sport-hunted polar bear trophies; their co-sponsorship of key bills such as those to stop horse slaughter, require the labeling of fur-trimmed apparel, and end the use of random source dogs and cats (including stolen pets) in research; and their signing of a letter requesting funding for enforcement of animal welfare laws. Members who led as prime sponsors of animal protection legislation receive extra credit.

I just wanted to thank you, as a voter in Joe Knollenberg's district, for standing up against him and the right-wing war hawks so steadfastly. Although they may try to smear you and it may be frustrating at times, keep at it. There's a host of folks within his district who want him out also. Keep it up and he won't be in for long!

Anna, thanks. I hope you might consider coming out and supporting me at my arraingment on March 12 at 8:30 a.m. at Troy District Court. Also, we will be setting up a legal defense fund that I hope you'll consider contributing to and telling your friends about.

It is a sad day for this country when the RNC & Bush can violate our Constitution yet Bruce gets the Gestopo treatment for exercising his first amendment rights.
