LDS Senator Criticized for Assisted Suicide Position
Oregon Secretary of State Bill Bradbury thinks he has the perfect issue for his campaign to unseat U.S. Senator Gordon Smith, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and is finding unintended help in the effort from an unlikely source -- the Bush administration, with whom Smith agrees on the issue. After U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft last week changed Justice department policy to stop assisted suicide, which is legal in Oregon after a referrendum twice approved by Oregon voters, Bradbury criticized Smith's anti-assisted-suicide stance, "It's really a tragedy to have Oregoniansí will and expressed desire get the bureaucratic backhand from the Bush administration," Bradbury said. "I really think it's sad that our junior senator, who could affect this, who has the greatest 'in' with the Bush administration, is basically turning the other way."
