Via email from the Wicked Witch of the West, under the title: Bi-partisan legislation is the best hope for 2008
While there were nearly 1200 votes in 2007, very little was accomplished and what was accomplished came in the flurry of activity at the end of the session. Partisan posturing sucked the oxygen out of the legislative air and plenty of good compromise legislation languished in 2007. I am returning to the 2008 session with much hope that this year we can focus on the needs of the people of the 5th District and America and work in a bi-partisan fashion.
Representative Foxx, I hereby and officially call bullshit on your press release and your long-standing record of divisive partisan voting. Just in case you can't read, from what I can tell, you voted in a bi-partisan fashion exactly 8 times in 2007 (two were motions to adjourn) and not once in 2005 when the Party of Greed was in control.
In other words, Representative Foxx, you are a hypocrite of the highest order. And you should be embarrassed to be caught trying to pull the wool over your constituents' eyes.
