Latest List of Anti-Anti-Lynching Senators [UPDATED]
Congress has updated its webpage for Senate Resolution #39 and the list of senators who have climbed aboard to cosponsor Mary Landrieu's apology for refusing to pass anti-lynching legislation, and they now number
Lamar Alexander (R-TN)
Robert Bennett (R-UT)
Thad Cochran (R-MS)
John Cornyn (R-TX)
Michael Enzi (R-WY)
Judd Gregg (R-NH)
Trent Lott (R-MS)
Richard Shelby (R-AL)
John Sununu (R-NH)
Craig Thomas (R-WY)
A couple of senators who were identified as supporters of the legislation yesterday still haven't found it within themselves to actually sign on to cosponsor, so their names are back on the list.
UPDATE: Chuck Grassley and Michael Crapo jumped aboard as cosponsors on Wednesday, so they've been marked off the list. We're down to 14 hold-out senators. They also put lie to the claim that many of the anti-anti-lynching senators are making to constituents that cosponsors can't be added after a bill has been passed. It's never too late to add your name to that list. (I also deleted the link to the resolution's Congressional Webpage, which seems to change day by day for some reason. The list of cosponsors still worked as of Thursday morning.)
UPDATE 2: Orrin Hatch jumped on the anti-lynching bandwagon on Thursday.
UPDATE 3: I thought that when no new names were added to the list of cosponsors on Friday that we'd reached the end, but Kay Hutchison and Gordon Smith both joined the cosponsors on Monday.
UPDATE 4: Some are still coming late to the party. Jon Kyl added his name as a cosponsor on Thursday. Only ten senators still refuse.
