Removed scorecard[edit]

I have removed the scorecards you placed on all of the congrespersons pages. Adding just one scorecard does not help understand the congresspersons positions on issues. Carte Rouge (talk) 21:25, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Sure. Could you point out some scorecards that need removing? Carte Rouge (talk) 21:35, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, you asked me if there were any other scorecards I'd like to remove. I'm not interested in adding any scorecards. What's you're relationship with Americans for Prosperity? Carte Rouge (talk) 21:39, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

I expect that you'll delete that entire selection from Diane Fienstein's website then?

Can I ask why you are deleting a feature that appears on very many congresspeoples website? On what grounds do you do so?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Dianne_Feinstein#Congressional_scorecards Still up, I expect you to delete this soon.

Conflict of interest[edit]

I reported what appears to be a conflict of interest of yours at Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest/Noticeboard#Daredevil0405.C2.A0.28talk.C2.A0.C2.B7_contribs.29_and_Americans_for_Prosperity.E2.80.8E. Please stop adding that scorecard to congresspersons unless it is useful to the understanding of that congressperson. Thanks. Carte Rouge (talk) 23:18, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

I believe knowing the Congressman's voting record is very useful to the understanding of that congressman. Would it be more helpful if I were to add each specific piece of legislation he/she voted down with regards to energy policy?

It would be useful if there were reliable third party sources that talked about it, yes. The "scorecard" you are listing doesn't provide a lot of information except that one lobbying group ranks a lot of people 0%. If you'd like to mention their positions on drilling in ANWAR or cap-and-trade, find sources and include that information. Are you employed in some way by Americans for Prosperity or a related group? Carte Rouge (talk) 23:23, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

So you want a third party source that talks about the ratings? Like a newsrelease from an outside source? How do you feel about the section of Feinstein's website that has a list of all her ratings by organizations?

Also, AFP was just recently mentioned in the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal and hosted an event that had every single Republican nominee. I don't know how this constitutes questionably notable. I will posts every single vote that contributed to the 0% rating.
