Tech voter's guide for 2006 election: How politicians voted



It's easy for politicians to claim to have done well by technology. 
Democratic Sen. John Kerry, for instance, made fundraising pilgrimages 
to Silicon Valley and claimed to have a reasonable tech platform. But in 
a scorecard rating tech-related votes that we've posted today, Kerry 
came in second-to-last in the entire U.S. Senate.

I don't mean to pick on Democrats (in fact, the Democrats did slightly 
better overall than Republicans in the House of Representative), just 
political hypocrisy. And of course most everyone failed. The details follow.
