FYI (hadn’t seen this round-up anywhere).
On the wiretapping bill:
Voting Nay: Cantwell, Inslee, McDermott, Baird, Smith, Dicks, Larsen; also: Clinton and Obama
Voting Yea: Reichert, McMorris-Rogers, Hastings
Not voting: Murray.
Murray’s office tells us she was in the state for a rare family occasion. They say she would have voted ‘Nay,’ and pointed out that the vote was so lopsided in favor (60-18) that her absence wasn’t significant.
