Senator Gibbs Endorses Question 2 But Votes Against It

The Daily News did a recent article on restoring felons rights (Question 2). I was present at the seminar on this topic along with reporter Jim Gillis. I was quoted as endorsing this question. The article than quoted Sen. Gibbs' opinion & she also endorsed it.

But in checking records of June 27, 2005 she voted AGAINST the Senate resolution(S 458) supporting restoring felons voting rights and placing it on the ballot for consideration.

So which is it, Senator Gibbs? You can't be FOR it and AGAINST it at the same time or is this yet another policy change?
