Congressman John Kline( MN- CD2-R) won't be receiving a valentine from the NAACP any time soon. A recently released scorecard by the NAACP on the 109th Congress gave John Kline the lowest rating from among the elected officials in Minnesota: A failing 22% on African-American issues.
The mid-term report card graded members of Congress on several pieces of legislation that deal with issues important to the African-American community including judicial nominations, discrimination legislation and education and environmental issues.
John Kline earned his failing grade by among other things: Voting against preventing discrimination when allotting federal funds (HR3862) while allowing federal surveillance of library records (HR 2862) and supporting CAFTA.
What an embarrassment to the voters in CD2. Time to replace Kline with someone who will represent everyone fairly.
