Guam - More than 300 registered voters were polled over the weekend on the controversy surrounding Senator Matt Rector.  354 people were asked "Given his criminal background, do you think Matt Rector should have been allowed to run for Senator in 2006?"

10% responded 'yes', 75% said 'no' and 15% had 'no opinion'.  The poll was conducted by Professor Ron McNinch's students at the University of Guam.  He said, "I would like to see people like that prosecuted for fraud when they lie like that on public documents because it's that serious of an issue. If somebody lies about their criminal history or their criminal past, that's something you should prosecute people for."
