Sen. John McCain has a long record of opposing equal pay for women. Given that his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), is a member of Feminists for Life, an anti-choice group that also calls for equal pay for women, it would be interesting to know her views on McCain’s votes against legislation designed to close the pay gap between men and women. One such piece of legislation is the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which the Senate voted on (and McCain opposed) just this spring.
