"I was there and I voted against the TARP."TARP was passed in 2008, before Kilroy got there.
Now, it's possible that she's talking about a bill that was defined as a "hollow gesture" in Congressional Quarterly. It was a resolution of disapproval against TARP that passed with Kilroy's support, but was done so after the Senate had already voted it down, thereby making it literally impossible to become law. In other words, it was done to cover the butts of House Democrats.
And that's what Kilroy was trying to exploit.
Anyone that wants to count the 2009 vote as a vote against TARP is not only delusional, but a total sucker for old school b.s. politics where the process is abused for political gain.
Facts are facts. Kilroy was not there to vote against TARP.
She's welcome to correct the record at her convenience.
