Maybe he just has a thing for letters with a hard "k" sound, as in "corporate".

Via Roll Call:

Former Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) is heading to K Street. The nine-term Member will be a partner in the legislative and government affairs group of Venable, the firm announced Monday. [...]

“We are thrilled to welcome Congressman Stupak to our government affairs group,” said Venable managing partner Karl Racine in a press release announcing the hire. “Bart is known as a truly bipartisan leader who not only knows the legislative process, but who took the time to understand critical issues that affect all of us.”

Yeah right, being avidly pro-forced birth is so very bipartisan:

  • Voted YES on banning Family Planning funding in US aid abroad. (May 2001)
  • Voted YES on federal crime to harm fetus while committing other crimes. (Apr 2001)
  • Voted YES on banning partial-birth abortions. (Apr 2000)
  • Voted YES on barring transporting minors to get an abortion. (Jun 1999)
  • Rated 0% by NARAL, indicating a pro-life voting record. (Dec 2003)
  • Rated 100% by the NRLC, indicating a pro-life stance. (Dec 2006)
  • Prohibit transporting minors across state lines for abortion. (Jan 2008)
