Senator Ben Nelson (DINO-NE) Can Go Cheney Himself

Ben Nelson told the committee chair that he would vote to approve Hans von Spakovsky for the Federal Elections Commission, so he was passed to the senate for a full vote.

"Clever Hans" is the Bush Administration's minority voter suppression guru. Specifically:
  • attempted to intimidate Justice Department employees
  • stifle their appeals
  • single-handedly disenfranchise thousands of Arizonans
  • Overrode his staff to approve the Tom Delay redistricting.
  • Overrode his staff to approve the Georgia Poll Tax voter ID plan
  • Gave false testimony (later modified in written answers) to the committee about it
