Penilers again decisive in significant vote

The Penile State delegation helped sink efforts to relubricate the credit crisis yesterday. The margin needed to pass the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act was 12 votes:
Fourteen Florida members voted against the bill, which was 13 votes shy of passing, and 11 voted for it.

Tampa Bay area members voting no were Republican Reps. Ginny Brown-Waite of Brooksville, Gus Bilirakis of Palm Harbor and Vern Buchanan of Sarasota, and Democratic Rep. Kathy Castor of Tampa, who has close ties to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The speaker had worked to pass the bill. tampabay.com
