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.

According to, 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]
