How well do you know your congressman? Part 1

Republican Tom Latham is a shadowy figure, no one really seems to know who he is or how he votes. So I thought I would share with you how some bipartisan agencies have rated Congressman Tom Latham

Rated 0% by the HRC, indicating an anti-gay-rights stance

Rated 31% by the NAACP, indicating an anti-affirmative-action stance

Rated 10% by CURE, indicating anti-rehabilitation crime votes

Rated 17% by the NEA, indicating anti-public education votes

Rated 0% by the CAF, indicating opposition to energy independence

Rated 5% by the LCV, indicating anti-environment votes

Rated 0% by APHA, indicating a anti-public health voting record

Rated 0% by the ARA, indicating an anti-senior voting record

 As scary as this is, it is just the tip of the iceberg.

    I look forward to the next installment in your series!

    Latham doesn’t go out of his way to attract attention like Steve King, but he has as bad a voting record as just about any Republican in the country.

    If you don’t mind a small copy-editing change, I would suggest that you write out the full name of each group, because a lot of people won’t know what all the acronyms stand for.
