Here’s last night’s 57-40 Senate roll call vote on the confirmation of Cass Sunstein to be Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget aka “Regulatory Czar.”
Six Republicans voted yes– Bennett, Collins, Hatch, Lugar, Snowe, and Voinovich.
Five Democrats voted no — Begich, Lincoln, Nelson, Pryor, Webb.
Independent Sanders voted no.
Boxer and Byrd did not vote.
Keep Sunstein’s defense of his most controversial writings — he says he only meant to provoke, and would never actually act on his musings about animal rights, for example — tucked away.
The questions aren’t going to go away.
