Tammy Baldwin


The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act has 161 co-sponsors; Wisconsin's "progressive" Congresswoman from the 2nd District, who is a candidate for the U.S. Senate, isn't one of them.

She's been asked repeatedly why not. She has said on numerous occasions, in public, that she just hadn't heard about it, even after being sent lots of information and after meetings with her and her aides.

That excuse has apparently been abandoned -- she's been called on it too many times, apparently, even for a politician. Now she claims that her "constituents" have advised her not to support this legislation.

And that's always been the real reason. She's just tried to dodge the issue when asked about her position in public -- probably because she believes that other than the UW-Madison vivisectors and a university administration that reaps immense financial benefits from their publicly-funded cruel experiments on animals who worry about the slippery slope -- her lefty constituents, like me, would be overwhelmingly appalled by her turning her back on the chimpanzees subjected to torture and lifetime imprisonment.
