Marshall Vote Watch


Marshall Vote Watch:
Jim Marshall and Cynthia McKinney joined to vote against
The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006


(Warner Robins, GA) – Jim Marshall and Cynthia McKinney joined today to vote against H.R. 4681 - The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006. The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 361 to 37.

The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act bans U.S. assistance to the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority, denies visas to its leaders and cuts off diplomatic contact with Hamas, which the U.S. has branded a terrorist organization.

“I would question why anyone would vote against this bi-partisan stand against terrorism. Jim Marshall should justify his refusal to condemn Palestine’s terrorist government to the voters of middle Georgia,” said Ted Prill, Campaign Manager for Congressman Mac Collins (Ret. R-GA).
