Many of you have heard that the election for U.S. House of Representatives in District 23 of upstate New York is now in question.
While it appeared Independent candidate Doug Hoffman lost the rather unusual election (remember the endorsed Republican candidate was exposed as a hard core Liberal and she withdrew), by about 6000 votes, as of today he has cut that loss by one half.
The nervous tension that has arisen on both sides of the political aisle is that the results may very well be headed for a recount because so many of the outstanding absentee ballots aren’t due until Monday and they are expected to come largely from military people. It may not be enough to change the outcome of the election but hope has indeed been restored.
What hasn’t been reported by many is a very important effect the initial results set into motion.
Democratic candidate Bill Owens immediately boogied off to Washington and voted Saturday night on Nancy Pelosi’s pet monster project, the Health Care Bill. And here is where life beats a Hollywood script every time.
The New York Election officials refused to ‘certify’ the results of the election as soon as they notice the dramatic swing with the absentee votes. (Obviously Hillary wasn’t at home last week or this might never have happened!)
Not only did New York State Board of Elections officials hold back on their authorization, they contacted Nancy Pelosi directly and told her the Democratic candidate (who, at this point IS NOT THE ‘WINNER’) could not be legally seated in Congress.
NANCY PELOSI IGNORED THEIR CAUTIONARY INFORMATION AND SEATED HIM ANYWAY SO HE COULD HELP IN THE VERY NARROW PELOSI WIN IN PASSING THE HOUSE VERSION OF THE BILL.
Knowingly allowing an ‘unelected’, common citizen from New York to sit in Congress and actually vote on a Bill stretches any semblance of legality or common sense and IT ACTUALLY MAKES THE ENTIRE HOUSE VOTE UNOFFICIAL AND VOID!
There are justifiable expectations that certification of the election will come by Tuesday or Wednesday and the overall results will not change, but that does not excuse Pelosi’s radical actions.
See should be subject to an ethics review that removes her from holding the position as Speaker of the House.
