Barbara Boxer: VRWC Member #3452

The secret can now be revealed. From "I'm the first to say it: Barbara Boxer is a DINO, with strong DLC ties-":

Yeah, I know, she's DU's "flavor of the week" but she is tainted as hell!

Fact: Boxer voted for the Patriot Act

She only has a 60%-70% rating from the ACLU-she's wrong over 30% of the time
She has a 22% rating from the Chamber of Commerce. In other words, in 1 in 5 votes, she sells out.
She voted for 1.15 million for COPS program, and we all know law enforcement is corrupt.
She voted to deploy National Missile Defense in 1998
She supported air strikes in Kosovo in 1999-innocent civilians died.
She only has a 78% rating from various animal rights organizations, indicating problems in her record.
Taxpayer for Common Sense (a right-wing group) gave her a 45% rating...

In December 1998, after Clinton launched four days of air strikes on Iraq's suspected WMD targets, Boxer enthusiastically backed President Clinton's decision to attack Iraq after he argued that Saddam Hussein was prepared to use chemical, biological and nuclear weapons against the world.

"The president had no choice but to act today," Boxer said in a statement issued by her office. "Anyone who questions the timing of his decision ignores the fact that we committed a month ago to act if [chief U.N. weapons inspector] Richard Butler reported that Saddam was not cooperating. These critics are blinded by political considerations."
