Lugar Votes Against Katrina Investigation

Just sent the following to our esteemed Senator Lugar, of Indiana.
Dear Sen. Lugar:

As a registered Indiana Republican, I am shocked and appalled that you would vote against a bipartisan, independant investigation into the federal government's slow response to Hurricane Katrina. National security has always been one of the top priorities of the Republican party, and in this case it is obviously something that the Republican party needs to improve on. And yet, as an Indiana Republican, here you are blocking progress on a grave matter of national security. What if Katrina had been another plane crash, or (God help us) a successful nuclear attack by terrorists? Would the President have waited 2 days to leave his vacation and get to work on getting evacuation and aid to the survivors? I'm frightened by the answer to that.

Your counterpart, the democrat Evan Bayh, voted for the independant commission. You have been outflanked on national security by a democrat. As your constituent, I would like to know why you are not taking our national security seriously in the Senate, and I would like assurances that you will vote for an investigation in the future, as I am sure this is not the last we have heard of a Katrina commission.


Let's hope he responds.
