Before his ethics probe heated up, Rep. Charlie Rangel was speaking out about how he would not vote to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan unless it was to bring the troops home.
The vote took place earlier this week and the funding was approved.
Rangel, along with most of the Congress members from New York City, voted no. Mike McMahon, the Democrat representing the Republican-leaning 13th district in Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn, was the only one from NYC to vote for the funding.
Here’s how the rest of the New York delegation voted on the bill (and thank goodness for the handy map from the Times):
NY-1: Democrat Tim Bishop-yes
NY-2: Democrat Steve Israel-yes
NY-3: Republican Peter King-yes
NY-4: Democrat Carolyn McCarthy-yes
NY-5: Democrat Gary Ackerman-yes
NY-6: Democrat Gregory Meeks-no
