That could be this Keith English – because someone else tagged the photo on Facebook:
The final vote to override Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of SB 509. Representative Jeremy LaFaver (D) (left) – bearing witness,
Representative Keith English (center) – casting the 109th vote necessary for the override,
and Representative Ron Hicks (r) (right) – his escort on and off the House floor.
Here’s the thing. Solidarity means you don’t sell out everyone else for something you want.
Is this an assertion that just one person in the entire State of Missouri stood between us and the enactment of right wingnut anti-organized labor legislation? Just asking.
And finally, dude, we’re an out of the way blog with dozens of readers. You just made the world safe for organized labor, truth, justice and the American Way, at least for the next two years – what are you doing messaging us? Don’t you have friends you can celebrate with?
That is, if the message really did come from Representative English. We have no idea.
