Top 10 Senate RINOs

As part of HUMAN EVENTS ongoing campaign against Republicans in name only (RINOs) we have compiled a list of the Top 10 Most Liberal Republican Senators based on the American Conservative Union Ratings for 2008 (110th Congress, second session. The ratings all compare rather unfavorably with that of Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), chairman of the Repubican Steering Committee. Sen. DeMint’s score was a perfect 100)

On the conservative scale, the ten lowest-scoring senators are:

1. Olympia Snowe, Maine: (ACU Rating: 12)
(Only one point higher than liberal Democrat Hillary Clinton who the ACU scored an 11, and an astonishing 4 points lower than Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid’s 16.)

2. Susan Collins, Maine: 20
(Collins received the same score as liberal Claire McCaskill, and 4 points lower than Russ Feingold’s 24)

3. Arlen Specter, PA: 42 (Only 10 points higher than Mary Landrieu’s 32)

4. George Voinovich, OH: 52

5. Lisa Murkowski, AL: 58

    You can add Tom Coburn, Oklahoma to this list. Tried to sell gun owners out working with the Dems on Gun Control. There are already laws regarding individuals with mental problems obtaining guns. We don’t need more that open the door to further opportunities that lead to registration.
