Signed the letter to President Clinton urging he do all in his power to secure Lori's release.

V

Voted for the Amendment that the U.S. Government consider holding aid to Peru as a mechanism for securing Lori's release.

a

Absent from vote on the Amendment.


Delegates Christian-Christiansen (D-VI), Faleomavaega (D-AS), Romero-Barcelo (D-PR), and Underwood (D-GU) signed the letter for Lori but are not eligible to vote for Congressional Amendments.

Among the voting members, 176 signed the letter to President Clinton, 189 voted for the Amendment to H.R. 2415. 140 members both signed the letter and voted for the Amendment. 49 members voted for the Amendment but did not sign the letter. 36 members signed the letter but did not vote for the Amendment - 3 of whom were absent. 210 members neither signed the letter nor voted for the Amendment, both of which call for release. According to Rep. Chris Smith, these members, including himself, would support a fair trial.
