Persons of Interest: Congresspeople Who Switched TARP Vote Then Left OfficeAll Posts No Comments [UPDATE below.]
For a while I have wanted to produce a stunning expose on how the financial sector took care of the Congressmen and women who lost their seats because they switched from “no” to “yes” on TARP back in October 2008. I have made some initial inquiries and paid someone to do the cross-referencing, but I don’t have the time to dig into the people who fit the profile. Rather than sit on this for another few months, I decided to release my findings to the millions of internet journalists who may smell a rat.
Just to refresh everyone’s memory, the House actually voted against the 0 billion TARP package the first time, on Monday, September 29, 2008. Then the Senate passed it, and the House voted again on Friday, October 3, 2008. This time it passed.
So what happened during that significant week? Obviously a bunch of representatives changed their votes. The following changed their initial “no” vote to “yes”:
Abercrombie, Neil D-HI
Alexander, Rodney R-LA
Baca, Joe D-CA
Barrett, J. Gresham R-SC
Berkley, Shelley D-NV
Biggert, Judy R-IL
Boustany, Charles W. Jr. R-LA
Braley, Bruce L. D-IA
Buchanan, Vern R-FL
Carson, Andre D-IN
Cleaver, Emanuel D-MO
Coble, Howard R-NC
Conaway, K. Michael R-TX
Cuellar, Henry D-TX
Cummings, Elijah E. D-MD
Dent, Charles W. R-PA
Edwards, Donna F. D-MD
Fallin, Mary R-OK
Frelinghuysen, Rodney P. R-NJ
Gerlach, Jim R-PA
Giffords, Gabrielle D-AZ
Green, Al D-TX
Hirono, Mazie K. D-HI
Hoekstra, Peter R-MI
Jackson, Jesse Jr. D-IL
Jackson-Lee, Sheila D-TX
Kilpatrick, Carolyn C. D-MI
Knollenberg, Joe R-MI
Kuhl, John R. “Randy” R-NY
Lee, Barbara D-CA
Lewis, John D-GA
Mitchell, Harry E. D-AZ
Myrick, Sue Wilkins R-NC
Ortiz, Solomon P. D-TX
Pascrell, Bill Jr. D-NJ
Pastor, Ed D-AZ
Ramstad, Jim R-MN
Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana R-FL
Rush, Bobby L. D-IL
Schiff, Adam B. D-CA
Schmidt, Jean R-OH
Scott, David D-GA
Shadegg, John B. R-AZ
Shuster, Bill R-PA
Solis, Hilda D-CA
Sullivan, John R-OK
Sutton, Betty D-OH
Terry, Lee R-NE
Thompson, Mike D-CA
Thornberry, Mac R-TX
Tiberi, Patrick J. R-OH
Tierney, John F. D-MA
Wamp, Zach R-TN
Watson, Diane E. D-CA
Welch, Peter D-VT
Woolsey, Lynn C. D-CA
Wu, David D-OR
Yarmuth, John A. D-KY
In addition, McDermott, Jim (D-WA) switched from “yes” to “no,” while Weller, Jerry (R-IL) initially didn’t vote but then voted “yes.”
Now of the above who switched from either an initial “no” or an initial “abstain” to a “yes” by the end of the week, which did not survive the 2008 election?
Only two: Knollenberg, Joe (R-MI) and Kuhl, John R. “Randy” (R-NY). (News accounts of their defeats here.) Clearly, if one suspects that the banking interests promised to take care of any representatives who were hurt by their TARP vote, Knollenberg and Kuhl would be the guys to investigate.
(Also of possible interest are Jim Ramstad [R-MN] who switched from “no” to “yes” but had already announced his retirement, Jerry Weller [R-IL] who initially didn’t vote then said “yes” but had already announced his retirement, and Hilda Solis [D-CA] who switched from “no” to “yes” but was named Labor Secretary in the new Obama administration.)
Note that I didn’t completely double-check the work of my assistant on this. I have made sure that Knollenberg, Kuhl, Ramstad, and Solis all switched their votes from “no” to “yes,” and I have confirmed their fates as described above. However, I did not independently verify the long list above. So if you plan on doing your own work on this, before you run with a story it would be smart for you to verify everything yourself.
The way to do this is to check the Roll Call votes. Here is the list of Ayes (Yeas), Nays, Present, and Non Votes from the Monday vote (when TARP failed to pass), and here is the list from the Friday vote when it passed.
Also, if you want to verify who is still in office, use this.
Release the hounds!
UPDATE: There was some confusion because if you click on the link above for the roll call vote on the original TARP motion, it looks like I linked to the wrong thing. But I didn’t. Here is the explanation (look at the “Note” for 9/29) in case you don’t want to take my word for it. As is its wont, the House tried to tack on the TARP to a different bill, H.R. 3997.
