Via The Huffington Post:

One day after voting to elevate a divisive conservative judge to the federal appeals court in New Orleans, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein was the president's guest aboard Air Force One. She had been invited to survey the damage from the recent spate of Southern California wildfires.

Two weeks later, Feinstein was one of two Democrats on the Senate judiciary committee to vote to send Michael Mukasey's nomination to be the new attorney general to the full Senate. Her support helped turn the tide in favor of a nomination that faced an uncertain future after Mukasey refused to say whether waterboarding was torture.

Now, a coalition of progressive Democrats upset with Feinstein's controversial votes will ask the California Democratic Party to censure her at its executive board meeting this weekend, the Huffington Post has learned. Read on...

The Courage Campaign is looking for your help to ensure that this censure resolution has legs... We need to remind DiFi that she is answerable to her constituency, not her buddies in the Bush Administration or the defense industry.

C'mon, we don't need another Lieber-Dem Bush Dog in the Senate.
