Democratic congressman: Don’t blame me, I voted for McCain!

Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss., is really trying hard to one-up all of those members of his party that say they won’t vote for Pelosi as Speaker. In fact, Taylor, who has a pretty good chance of losing his election next week, is now saying he didn’t vote for Obama for president:

Conservative Democratic Rep. Gene Taylor (Miss.) said over the weekend that voted against his own party when he went to the ballot box to vote for president in 2008.

Taylor told the Sun Herald of South Mississippi that he chose Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for president over then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.)

Reporter Maria Recio told The Hill that when Taylor was asked if he voted for the Democratic nominee in 2008, he said, “I did not vote for Obama. I voted for Sen. McCain. Better the devil you know.”
