Jesse Jackson votes against Obama?

Update: How did Jesse Jackson really vote? According to the government itself, Jackson voted Aye. I guess I'll have to run with that. Apologies for the mistake. The last paragraph, then, doesn't seem so terribly relevant now. But I'll let it stand as a general comment on political life. Can anyone think of any cases where it applies?

Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) voted against Obama's hate crime bill, H.R. 1913: Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009.

It's a shame how religious affiliation (he's a baptist) will cloud your political vision. Or, it's a disgrace when civil rights activists falls short of their calling because a selective reading of the Bible renders them homophobic.
