Boozman: Against NCTR before he was for it

Posted By on Thu, Nov 3, 2011 at 12:22 PM

Why do voters let its politicians get away with this?

Tuesday, the Senate approved a spending bill that would provide $60 million for the National Center for Toxicological Research at Pine Bluff.

Sen. John "Dr. No" Boozman VOTED AGAINST THE FUNDING BILL THAT INCLUDED NCTR.

Get a load of this quote in Stephens Media coverage of the vote, which noted Boozman's vote against the bill, but added that he "supports" the funding:

“He is pleased to see more funding for this important center in the Senate version of the appropriations bill,” said Sara Lasure, a spokeswoman for Boozman.

If he was so pleased, why didn't he vote for the damn bill?

Blithering hypocritical dick of the week.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
