Some senators won't take a stand against lynching. Both Kentucky Senators signed on.

KY is on this list from BlondeSense of with 100 or more Lynchings from 1882-1967. 205 to be specific. It is sad that McConnell and Bunning, both KY-R, only signed on to the resolution on Monday (link also has list of 6 who have not signed on, currently Richard Shelby (R-Ala.); Thad Cochran (R-Miss.); Trent Lott (R-Miss.) surprise surprise; Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.); John Cornyn (R-Tx.); Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tx.)). McConnel probably was late because he doesn't count many blacks among GOP donors, and cash is what moves his world. Bunning only does what McConnell tells him to.

More on the story from Pam's House Blend. Always amazing. I'm embarassed that I hadn't added her to my links before now. AmericaBlog (and AmericaBlog update) and DKos as well.

A list of the resolution's sponsors.
