Cheney's Democrats

The list of Democrats who voted against the Emmanuel amendment, preserving funding for Cheney's Office of the Vice President, allowing defeat of the DCCC leader's amendment by a 218-209 margin:

Cheney Democrats

Bean
Boren
Capuano
Cuellar
Edwards
Ellsworth
Gordon
Herseth Sandlin
Kaptur
Klein (FL)
Lampson
McDermott - supports impeaching Cheney
Murtha
Obey
Peterson (MN)
Ross
Salazar
Skelton
Snyder
Tanner

Two Republicans voted for the amendment. This is a sign that the impeachment of Cheney needs bipartisan support, because Cheney also has bipartisan support. If you support impeachment and you live in one of these Cheney Dems districts, you should start working to build support for impeachment in your district, and build support for consequences in primaries if these Dems defend Cheney during impeachment proceedings in the House.
