Weiner Gets ‘A’ From NAACP
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has given Representative. Anthony Weiner, who represents a portion of Rockaway, its highest “A” rating for his performance during the 108th Congress.
According to the NAACP’s Federal Legislative Report Card, Weiner cast the right votes on “legislation of critical importance to the African American community and other friends of civil rights.”
The NAACP’s Federal Legislative Report Card evaluates every Member of Congress based on their votes on legislation of importance to the African American community, and civil rights.
This year, the report card considered thirty key votes on a wide range of issues, including health care, education, unemployment, housing, and other social services.
On all thirty votes, Weiner voted in favor of the NAACP’s position, one of just five members of New York City’s delegation in the House of Representatives to do so. His performance garnered him an ‘A’ grade from the NAACP.
“I am honored to be recognized by the NAACP for my work during the 108th congress,” said Rep. Weiner. “These are important issues that affect all New Yorkers and I am proud of my record of support.”
In February of 2004, the NAACP gave Weiner an “A” rating for his work in the first session of the 108th.
