Lamont Turns Tables On Lieberman, Saying Senator Missed Too Many Votes

September 13, 2006
By MARK PAZNIOKAS, And DAVID LIGHTMAN Courant Staff Writers


One of the votes Lieberman missed last week was on a proposal by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., to force the Bush administration to address incidents of civil strife in quarterly reports about Iraq.

Lieberman was absent to accept an award at the Kennedy Center for his work helping promote wholesome entertainment. Kennedy's proposal lost, 54 to 44

Talking to reporters from Washington, Lieberman said he would have been present if his vote had the potential to tip the balance. His first reaction to the question of missed votes was to tear into Lamont.

then...he goes on to excuse himself further..get this:

Lieberman said he would have voted with Kennedy if he had been present. "Why not have more information?" he asked.

The next day, he missed a vote on a proposal by Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., to bar the use of funds for a public relations program aimed at monitoring U. S. news media, and to create a database of news stories to promote positive coverage of the war. Lieberman said he would have backed Menendez' plan, which lost 51-44.
