From Atomic Gay Wonk:
Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) yesterday introduced an amendment that would have added the name of Jesse Helms to the title of the HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria bill that is before the Senate. Helms, who died eleven days ago, was the nation's most vociferous foe of federal funding for HIV/AIDS programs from the epidemic's beginning until he left the Senate.
The name of the Act proposed in S. 2731 is "Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008".
Dole offered an amendment that would add Helms' name after those of Lantos and Hyde. The post has a link so that readers can give Dole, uh, input as well as a link to the web site for Dole's Democratic opponent, Kay Hagan.
