IAPAC Releases Scorecard for 109TH Congress
Washington, DC — To inform the public about where members of Congress stand on domestic policies important to the Iranian American community, the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) has compiled a scorecard that outlines how they have voted on legislation during the 109th Congress.
“This scorecard is a vital tool for rating members of Congress on votes important to the Iranian American community in the 109th Congress,” said IAPAC Political Director Morad Ghorban. “With legislative attempts to curb Iranian immigration and citizenship in the 109th Congress and other critically important votes to our community rated in this scorecard, we would encourage all Iranian Americans to review the scorecard and know where your members of Congress stand on issues of civil rights and immigration.”
The scorecard examines votes and positions for only the 2005 and 2006 legislative sessions, and does not in any way reflect each individual’s voting record in the past. The scorecard is merely one of many tools used by IAPAC to identify potential candidates to support, and it does not indicate IAPAC’s approval or disapproval of the candidates in question. The candidates who receive contributions from IAPAC have an exceptional track record on the domestic issues of importance to the Iranian American community, have articulated a readiness to engage and work with Iranian Americans, represent a large Iranian American constituency, or are in a position to have influence over the domestic legislative issues of concern to the community.
