Fossella supports Torture

via NYSDC;

Rep. Vito Fossella, usually a staunch supporter, sharply scolded President Bush yesterday after the president reversed himself and embraced Republican Sen. John McCain's measure banning torture of prisoners.

Earlier this week, the House approved a resolution supporting McCain's bill by a vote of 308 to 122, with more than 100 Republicans voting in favor.

Fossella (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn) voted against the resolution.

McCain's bill would prohibit "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment" of anyone held in U.S. custody.

Curiously after I came across this in my research I see Marc has covered it as well over at blue spot blog. From Marc;

So the same argument Fossella is making against Harrison, he has made against Sen. McCain, a man who is likely to be his party's nominee for president in 2008.
