Sherrod Brown regrets voting for the Military Commissions Act

Bob Geiger reports that Sherrod Brown admitted that he was wrong to vote for the Military Commissions Act:

Audience Member: "In 2006, when you were still a member of the House of Representatives you voted for the Military Commissions Act, which had as one of its elements, the suspension of Habeas Corpus. Given your recent efforts to restore Habeas Corpus, would you still cast that same vote today."

Brown: "No, I was wrong." Period.

I'm glad he admits it.

Comments

It's a start, but not enough for me to forgive him.

The Military Commissions Act prevents prisoners who are abused from filing lawsuits. Let's see if Sherrod Brown does anything to reverse that.

Yeah?

What changed?

He's just one of many, and it's too little too late.

Yeah? What changed?

He won the election.
