Lieberman fumble spoils voting records


WASHINGTON — Sen. Joe Lieberman spoiled the perfect voting record of two fellow senators Wednesday in a blunder that drew guffaws from at least a few of his colleagues.
As chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Lieberman assured members that they could remain and finish up business when a vote was called in the Senate chamber.
Lieberman told the members that the vote would be "held open" as a courtesy for them but it turned out he was mistaken. The tally was closed, and 12 of the 17 members of the committee failed to have their vote recorded.
Among those who missed the vote were Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii, and Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. Neither had missed a vote this session.
Lieberman also missed the vote, his sixth of the session........
