According to Roll Call, Congressman Tom Udall has received the endorsement by the New Mexico Fraternal Order of Police:
“Tom Udall has spent his career serving the citizens of New Mexico. He has a proven record of supporting laws that protect our citizens and he has always been a strong supporter of law enforcement,” FOP President Bill Standridge said in a statement released by the Udall campaign.
Tom Udall has always been “a strong supporter of law enforcement.” Oh, really? Apparently, someone forgot to suggest to FOP President Bill Standridge to take a look at Congressman Udall’s voting record. If they had, they would have found that Congressman Udall was a member of a very, very small caucus of Congressman to vote against the bill Condemning the decision of St. Denis, France, to name a street in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the convicted murder of Philadelphia Police Office Danny Faulkner.
Someone please explain to me how being a member of the Cop Killer Caucus makes Tom Udall a supporter of law enforcement?
