Democrat Rep. Mark Udall is spearheading the resolution condemning Rush Limbaugh. It apparently has 19 co-sponsors now.
Meantime, Colorado Sen. Ken Salazar has started a censure bandwagon:
Sen. Ken Salazar dove further into the Rush Limbaugh brouhaha today, saying he’d support censuring the conservative radio talk-show host for his use of the words “phony soldiers.”
During a conference call with reporters, Salazar, a Colorado Democrat, said he’d support censure if a vote were taken. None is planned currently in the Senate.
“Rush Limbaugh owes an apology,” Salazar said. “He owes an apology to the men and women in uniform who are doing the duty that the commander in chief has asked them to do.”
Guess he’s trying to get back into the nutroots’ good graces after signing onto the resolution condemning MoveOn.
The Daily Sentinel also points out that Salazar’s brother is helping track phony soldiers.
Salazar last month denounced MoveOn.org for an advertisement it placed in The New York Times calling the American commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, “Betray-us.”
Ken Salazar voted for a resolution criticizing MoveOn.org for its ad, but other than his vote, Salazar “didn’t register much righteous indignation,” said Dick Wadhams, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party.
His brother, meantime, U.S. Rep. John Salazar, D-Colo., is working to establish a database of soldiers who have earned military honors so that people who falsely claim to hold medals can be prosecuted under the Stolen Valor Act, which John Salazar authored.
ABC News recently broadcast a report on phony soldiers, including MacBeth.
“Is Salazar going to vote to censure ABC News?” Wadhams said.
