Chichester Edits Statements For Accuracy

Sen. Barbara Boxer, on the Senate floor today, justifying her vote against condemning the ad:

"We (I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area, where the Board of Supervisors refused to allow the WWII-era USS Iowa to dock in our Bay as a floating museum) condemn all attacks against our men and women serving honorably in the military, not just one organization. We (In San Francisco, 'we' banned JROTC from our city's public schools) condemn all the attacks. And I hope colleagues will vote no; otherwise, we (Last year my fellow Democrat, San Francisco Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval, said, 'the United States should not have a military') are starting a terrible precedent around here that we (America, plus San Francisco) will regret."
