Rep. King’s amendment failed – here’s the roll call vote. Every Democrat voted against it – but it lost because 78 Republicans also went against stopping over a billion dollars in money being paid out for fraud. Two votes jumped out at me.
Tea Party favorite Allen West (R-FL) voted with the Congressional Black Caucus to keep Pigford funding flowing to fraudsters.
But worse, Darrell Issa (R-CA), who would be the one to get investigations going.
Don’t get mad — take action. Pigford needs an investigation. Darrell Issa’s office phone in Washington is 202-225-3906. I want to here what they have to say in comments.
