In a Win for Life, Upset Vote by Catholic Bishops

They passed over the Bernadin kind of bishop to elect NY Archbishop Dolan. Chicago Daily Observer.

More. Chicago Breaking News. Editorial comment in a news story (emphasis mine):
Dolan also does not outright deny the sacrament to dissenting Catholic lawmakers, but he is seen as a stricter defender of church orthodoxy in a style favored by many theological conservatives. By contrast, Kicanas was pilloried in the days leading up to the vote by right-wing Catholic bloggers, who urged readers to send protest faxes and leave messages for bishops at the hotel where they are meeting.
Because protesting a priest is abusive.

(Would it be accurate to describe Kicanas as a left-wing Catholic bishop then?)
