Con to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
"I oppose the death penalty because it is inconsistent with basic American principles of justice, liberty, and equality. In January 2007, I introduced the Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act to abolish the federal death penalty. I have introduced similar bills in past Congresses in my continued effort to end state-sponsored executions."
