Flag-Burning Amendment (Better Late than Never Edition)
The key bit:
Bass, meanwhile, "has co-sponsored each bill on flag burning during his tenure in the House, his office said."
In New Hampshire, Hodes, a Concord lawyer, said through his campaign manager that he would have voted against the measure. (Bass and U.S. Rep. Jeb Bradley supported the flag amendment last year, and U.S. Sens. Judd Gregg and John Sununu, both R-N.H., voted for it Tuesday.)
“His belief is that flag burning is offensive and disrespectful, especially to veterans, but where do you draw the line?' said Hodes campaign manager Dana Houle. “What about people who burn the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights, or the Bible, or the Quran? Instead of arguing about flag burning, what Congress should be doing is holding President Bush accountable for not having a plan for Iraq.”
