By the way, the 73-year-old senator has written another letter to a constituent about the stem-cell initiative, due to face voters in November. This voter has MS and asked Champion if she supported the initiative.
Champion, of course, again dodged the question, but expressed "hope" that a cure for MS would be found, even if the stem-cell initiative fails. We'll post the text of the letter later today on CHATTER.

A person with MS wrote Champion and asked for her position on the stem-cell initiative. Champion sent back her dodgy boilerplate letter with this fresh paragraph:
I am very sorry to learn that you have Multiple Sclerosis. I believe that we will be getting new cures through adult stem cells even if the voters should reject research with somatic cell nuclear transfer. We can only hope that one of the cures that comes out of the research will be for MS.
