Who supports the Arabs?
I was checking out Project Vote Smart's website tonight, looking at the special interest group ratings of various politicians. I came across the 2004 Arab-American Institute ratings. Intrigued, I copied the data into Excel. Here's what I came up with:
House of Representatives Average Ratings
Senate Average Ratings
How did our state's representatives and senators do on the Arab American test?
Leach 33 (RINO!)
King -5 (just kidding, 0)
Scores were based upon the voting records of the reps and senators on certain issues, including accountability for Syria and Saudi Arabia, Immigration, support for an Israel-Palestine wall, Hate Crimes, and Civil Liberties in regards to FISA.
Of our delegation, Steve King got the most "negative" ratings, 4 out of 7.
