Topic - Mari Carmen Aponte
The Senate confirmed Mari Carmen Aponte as U.S. ambassador to El Salvador in a simple voice vote that hid the intense two-year controversy over her nomination.
In the recent presidential debates in New Hampshire, no comment received a more positive response that Newt Gingrich's statement about the anti-Christian bigotry of the media.
Mari Carmen Aponte will be cleaning out her desk and preparing to return to the United States by the end of the month because Senate Republicans - suspicious of her past ties to a suspected Cuban spy and angered by her support for gay issues - stopped her from continuing to serve as the U.S. ambassador to El Salvador.
The U.S. ambassador to El Salvador stirred up ghosts from her past when she wrote a newspaper article praising the president of the Central American nation for supporting the homosexual agenda.
Republicans are upset with a summertime op-ed column she wrote on gay rights and old unfounded rumors that her boyfriend was a Cuban spy.
Miss Aponte told the Senate committee that she had "social contacts" with Cuban diplomats but was never aware of any effort to recruit her as a spy.
