Cory Gardner Votes To Ban Abortion (Again)

  • 8 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

That’s the word from Denver7’s Blair Miller:

Despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s vote in favor, legislation to ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy failed to obtain the necessary 60 votes to advance to a final vote in the U.S. Senate–thus effectively killing the bill after its passage last fall in the GOP-controlled House. A few red-state Democrats including West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin were put on record voting in favor of the bill, and a few others were made nominally uncomfortable after going on record against it in states where that could cost them some amount of support.

For Sen. Cory Gardner, today’s vote was just another opportunity to shamelessly burn everyone who covered for his stridently anti-abortion record during the 2014 elections. Endorsing Gardner in 2014, the Denver Post bemoaned the “tedious refrain” of Democrats warning about Gardner’s position on abortion, stating flatly that “Sen. Cory Gardner’s election would pose no threat to abortion rights.”

Safe to say that prediction did not age well.

  1. I keep expecting the Denver Post to point out Gardner's activities when they deviate from what he ran on (in their editorial interview). Hasn't happened yet.

  2. In yet another of the multiple daily slaps to Gardner’s “credibility” . . . 

    Alabama Sen. Doug Jones (D), who recently won in a special election against Republican candidate Roy Moore, also voted "no."

    . . . Say, has anyone ever seen our Fluffy and Sen. Corwardly Lyin’ together in the same photograph???
