Democratic Senators Take Issue With Hillary Clinton’s Portrayal Of Bailout Vote

These are very interesting details. Former Senator Dorgan is a straight shooter. Most intriguing, however, is the statement by former Senator Bayh!

A similar sentiment was expressed by Indiana’s former Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh — who also voted with Sanders to block the TARP money. He told IBT that while he did not recall the specific 2009 vote that Clinton is citing, his state is home to a large contingent of autoworkers and that he therefore does not believe he cast a vote that was designed to deny help to the auto industry.

“My state, Indiana, is a big auto state, and I was always very strongly in favor of helping the auto companies, and I’m glad we did,” said Bayh, who has endorsed Clinton’s presidential bid. “So I would find it to be very unlikely that I cast something that at the time was perceived as an anti-auto vote.”

He also pointed out his ties to the workers and industry that supported the bailout.

“The United Autoworkers were always some of my strongest supporters; I had good relations with the auto companies themselves,” he told IBT. “So it couldn’t have been primarily an up or down vote on the autos.”


[hr]On a related note, did you see the list of Mrs. Clinton's speaking fees since she left State?
