Queens Democratic Congressmen Gary Ackerman and Joseph Crowley got top marks from a liberal group for the votes they cast in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2006.
Our pols get liberal organization's vote
Ackerman, whose district runs from Jackson Heights to Douglaston and Little Neck, and Crowley, whose district stretches from College Point to Woodside, failed to vote with the liberal lobbying group on just one of 20 votes the ADA considered the most important of the year.
"I always try to vote my conscience and in keeping with what's best for my constituents, not different interest groups," Crowley said.
Well, Joe, why do you vote this way when Queens voters tend to be more middle-of-the-road as a general rule and your district in particular encompasses such a wide cultural, political and socio-economic spectrum?
