RIP Arlen Specter

RIP, Arlen Specter

He had his moments of ugliness, but he was for the last several terms in office a voice of moderation in the Senate and a fighter. He was a politician I actually liked and crossed party lines to vote for.

He certainly did whatever he had to, to stay in power.

Quote:
According to fivethirtyeight.com, during January–March 2009 Specter voted with the Democrats 58% of the time. Following the support of the stimulus package and the entrance of Pat Toomey in the Republican primary, Specter began to vote 16% with Democrats. When switching to become a Democrat, he voted 69% with his new party initially, until Joe Sestak entered the Democratic primary and Specter started to vote 97% of the time.[65]
