Straight Answer Of The Day At TBA

It was a great day at the Take Back America conference yesterday and one of the best sessions was a town-hall meeting Monday night with Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

Brown had to know this was coming and it occurred near the end of the question-answer session when an Ohio constituent asked Brown about his vote in favor of the Military Commissions Act while he was still in the House of Representatives.

Here's the interaction in its entirety:

Audience Member: "In 2006, when you were still a member of the House of Representatives you voted for the Military Commissions Act, which had as one of its elements, the suspension of Habeas Corpus. Given your recent efforts to restore Habeas Corpus, would you still cast that same vote today."

Brown: "No, I was wrong."


Now that wasn't so hard, was it?
