Democrats Fix Vote

You know the party that's always accusing the Republicans of cheating on votes, well until they start actually winning the votes? They actually "fixed" a vote the other night right on the floor of the House of Representatives.

From The Wall Street Journal:

Monday, August 6, 2007 12:01 a.m. EDT

The House of Representatives almost turned into the Fight Club Thursday night, when Democrats ruled that a GOP motion had failed even though, when the gavel fell, the electronic score board showed it winning 215-213 along with the word FINAL. The presiding officer, Rep. Mike McNulty (D., N.Y.), actually spoke over the clerk who was trying to announce the result.

In the ensuing confusion several members changed their votes and the GOP measure to deny illegal aliens benefits such as food stamps then trailed 212-216. Boiling-mad Republicans stormed off the floor. The next day, their fury increased when they learned electronic records of the vote had disappeared from the House's voting system.

Ain't it great constantly hearing about how corrupt the Bush administration is? I mean they are spying, without warrants, on our enemy that Congress has declared war on. Thank god for the honesty and integrity of the Democratic Party.

By the way, Cindy Sheehan (in the picture above) has nothing to do with this story. I needed a picture of Nancy P for this blog and I find it quite amusing that she has this picture on her web site. Kind of odd since Sheehan has now vowed to run against her because she feels Nancy is not doing her job.
