Thornberry's staff in the dark?

I called Thornberry's local office at the request of MoveOn.org Friday, 12/17, 10:57 A.M. - (371-8844), and spoke with Nora Shirley (dad-gummit, I didn't ask her title). I identified myself as a constituent and asked how Thornberry voted on the DeLay rule allowing indicted members to keep leadership positions. I was told by Ms. Shirley that "we don't know how he voted because it was a closed door vote. If you will give me your address the congressman will write you himself."

I gave Ms. Shirley my address and am anxiously awaiting my personally signed letter from Mac! Do YOU believe his staff doesn't know how he voted?

If you would like to get the information and give congressman Thornberry a call, here is the web address: http://www.moveon.org/callmade13.html?id
