Is The Washington Times Mad At Fred For Relaxing With Jay Instead Of Debating In NH?
The Washington Times throws a hard right at Senator Thompson with this headline:“Thompson soft on illegals in Senate votes.” Key graph:
Some [Thompson] votes are likely to draw scrutiny, particularly a series of votes in the 1990s against cracking down on illegal aliens. Those include a 1995 vote against limiting services other than emergency care and public education to illegal aliens – he was one of just six senators to oppose that proposal – and a 1996 vote against creating an employer verification system to help businesses filter out illegal aliens who apply for jobs.
There’s not much chance Jay Leno will ask him about the story or the votes, which may be why he’s across the continent from the debate.
