  •  Goodbye, Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25/24) (9+ / 0-)

    Don't remember her? Maybe because she didn't really do anything in the 112th...other than provide a reliable teabagger vote from a district in central New York that turned out to be nowhere near as reactionary or troglodytic as she was.

    Which may explain why she was roundly, soundly defeated by Dan Maffei, the very D she'd (barely!) beaten in 2010.

    In her last act as a congresswoman, BTW, Buerkle courageously weighed in on the fiscal cliff legislation by...um...not voting at all.

    So long, Congresswoman! Here's the door. You know what? It can hit you wherever. I don't really care anymore.

    Intended to be a factual statement.

      before seeing this.  See my post for more of her mis-deeds.

      As for her last vote, the Syracuse paper is indicating that she is saying she did vote "no" but is now blaming the House voting machine (they put a credit card type thing in a slot) for malfunctioning.   Always someone else's fault.

      They also say she is keeping her apt for one more month as she makes the rounds of RW & fundy Catholic think tanks, trying to scare up a 'job'.  

      YUCK!!!!    Hope we've seen the last of her around these parts.
