Response to Omaha Steve (Original post)

18. Uh...

If I'm reading this correctly, this post refers to Mello as anti-Keystone XL, but, as Senator, he signed a letter of support, addressed to Kerry, in 2014.

So, did something change between then and now? Has he publicly withdrawn his support? Genuinely asking.

Also..aren't we supposed to be all for criminal justice / police reform? In Feb 2016 -- right around the height of police involved shootings, Mello introduced a bill that would allow police to withhold body cam footage from the public if it's not part of the investigation-- we all know that for full and fair accountability, all available footage must be released.

So I'm having a really hard time understanding exactly what being a "true progressive" is all about. And I'm baffled by Bernie's sudden willingness to compromise on ideas since throughout the entire campaign, compromise was a no no.
