John Olver voted "YEA"


The 1st Congressional District -- spanning Berkshire, Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin, Worcester and Middlesex Counties -- is the largest congressional district in Massachusetts. It is framed by Connecticut to the South, New York to the west, and Vermont and New Hampshire to the north. Primarily a rural district, the 1st District geographically constitutes close to 40% of the state, yet represents only one-tenth of Massachusetts' population.

2. actually...
it was Kennedy's vote that suprised me.

I'm not hatin' though. He spoke up in support. Not many did even that.
More importantly, I like his voting record

I will vote for Ted again. I think we can count on him for Social Security and a lot of other stunts the repugs try to pull.


And I will definity vote for Markey again.

and you gotta love secretary Will Galvin...

he kicks ass...
---------------------------------------------
Secretary Galvin writes his name large in state politics
By Glen Johnson , Associated Press writer

BOSTON -- He is third in line to run the state's government, but his name is not William Bulger or Charles Flaherty.
When he ran for secretary of state two years ago, he did so with little fanfare but a solid strategy of building support among Democratic political activists.
Five years after voters rejected him when he tried to become state treasurer, William Francis Galvin is back on Beacon Hill -- and with far more power than when he was one of 160 state representatives.
Mr. Galvin is formally known as secretary of the commonwealth, and as such plays a key role in shaping the public perception of both the Legislature and state government in general.
From his office on the third floor of the Statehouse, the same floor that houses the offices of Sen. Bulger, the Senate president, Rep. Flaherty, the House speaker, and Gov. William F. Weld, Mr. Galvin controls the state's election process.

He also oversees public access to state documents, polices securities transactions, regulates government lobbyists, and supervises the Massachusetts Historical Commission and the state archives.

and he levied fines on corporate thieves at franklin templeton.

-------------------------------------
FRANKLIN TEMPLETON ADMITS MARKET TIMING; FINED $5 MILLION
Secretary of the Commonwealth William Francis Galvin today fined two Franklin
Templeton entities $5 million for fraudulently allowing a known market timer to invest in mutual
funds in exchange for an investment in a Franklin hedge fund. This arrangement is typically
referred to as placing sticky assets with a fund company.
In a consent order entered today with the Massachusetts Securities Division, Franklin
Advisers, Inc. and Franklin Templeton Alternative Strategies, Inc. not only agreed to pay the
fine, but also admitted to allowing a known market timer to market time a fund whose prospectus
language strictly prohibited such a practice, a violation of the Massachusetts Uniform Securities
Act.
