Just one WI Congressman with no opinion...

...on the marriage amendment, and it's my Congressman.
Kind mum on state vote

La Crosse Democrat Ron Kind refuses to say how he plans to vote on the Wisconsin amendment, “preferring to keep his vote as a private citizen private,” spokesperson Stephanie Lundberg said Wednesday.

Kind opposes the federal amendment banning same-sex marriage, voting against it in 2004.
In all fairness, Dave Obey didn't give his view either. However, Obey refuses to give interviews to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ever since they stopped home deliveries in his home district.

And by the way, since when was a politician ever a "private citizen"? Since when did a politician's view on something become something his constituents weren't supposed to know?

I understand that politicians are also humans with families and deserve an amount of privacy. However, when you won't give your constituents your beliefs on a political issue that's this big, there's something wrong.

Ah, ahem, private citizen my rear end! Don't you pretty much give up that title when you are elected to office? Another nail in Mr. Kind's political coffin.

Good grief! Keep it private? Hello! Do the words "elected official" mean anything to you Ron Kind?
Dave Obey and Ron Kind, yeah.... there's a good pair.
Dave Obey has been around waayyyyy too long. I hope that district will give him a merlot and say "bye-bye."
Kristi, you're up at 4:38 am? We're you getting the pig ready?

Yeah, I grew up under Obey and now I'm under Kind. I'm not sure which is worse.

I grew up under Dave Obey too and I am 20 years older than you! Shouldn't he be about 100 years old by now?
