Is It Dred Scott Garrett?

Extremist Rubber Stamp Radical Republican (Ernie) Scott Garrett just voted against the Voting Rights Act, one of 33 members out of 435, all conservative Republicans. He is the only member of the New Jersey delegation to vote against a bill that has protected the rights of millions of Americans to vote for four decades. In fact, Garrett is the ONLY MEMBER OF CONGRESS NORTH OF THE MASON-DIXON LINE TO VOTE AGAINST IT. All of the Republicans in New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania voted for it except Scott Garrett. Garrett should run for Congress in Alabama, not New Jersey.

Does Scott Garrett truly yearn for the days of Jim Crow? This vote raises some questions. Would Scott Garrett have voted against the Voting Rights Act in 1965? How about the Civil Rights Act in 1964?

Does Scott Garrett support the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments that end slavery, secure equal justice, and guarantee the right to vote? Would Scott Garrett support Brown v. Board of Education, or is segregation a good idea? Would he support Loving v. Virginia, or should a loving couple of mixed race be prevented from tying the knot?

Are Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson some of Garrett's favorite Supreme Court decisions? Are Bull Connor and George Wallace and Strom Thurmond and Orval Faubus some of Garrett's idols?

Dred Scott Garrett is stuck in the 18th century. We need a 21st Century Representative who believes in what Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson fought for --equal rights under the law!

Contribute to and volunteer for Paul Aronsohn. Paul wouldn't hesitate to support equal rights, and we shouldn't hesitate to back him.

Amazing. You do have to hand it to him, though. He doesn't even pretend to vote the interests of his constituents.

But it is the constituents' fault in this district as well, for electing someone who will keep their taxes low and not worrying about what other things he might stand for.

most people in the district don't know how crazy scott garrett is, they've just vote republican because they always had moderates like marge roukema, who were not nuts, we have to wake people up and show them how crazy he is.

how much $$ does Aronson have on hand for the election?

I wonder if he's hiring? i am looking for a 7/hour campaign gig and so far no one's biting.

God, i would love to retire Garrett. His support of the Jim Crow era politics is truly nausiating.
