TN Republicans Vote Against Rebuking Joe Wilson

In case you couldn’t find it in your local newspaper last week, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to rebuke South Carolina Republican Congressman Joe Wilson for yelling “YOU LIE!” during an address by President Barack Obama.

In the Tennessee delegation, those voting against the rebuke included Republican Congressmen Jimmy Duncan, Zach Wamp, Phil Roe, and Marsha Blackburn. Those voting for the rebuke were Democratic Congressmen Steve Cohen, Bart Gordon, Jim Cooper, and Lincoln Davis. Democratic Congressman John Tanner managed to miss the vote.
