    Just called and rep was unaware of a discharge petition.  I think we should call all our Republican Congress members as well and put the pressure on quickly.  I'm in a kind of lame duck position, since because of redistricting, I'm not in his riding going forward.  But still, he represents me for the moment, so I tried.

        When I spoke to my Dem congresscritter's offices in Albany and DC, the staffers I spoke to had essentially the same reaction: "Wait, what?" I think a lot of people thought Nancy was just playing political kabuki with her previous statements and wasn't really going to submit that discharge petition.

        Oops.
