  •  Harry Reid phoned White, and apparently asked (0+ / 0-)

    him to do this.

    The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

    •  In Reid world, that makes sense (7+ / 0-)

      In order to stop an appointment by a governor who has been accused of exceeding his authority in conducting state business, he leans on another Illinois state official to exceed his authority in conducting state business.

      All so Mr. Reid and his cronies can get a fig leaf to cover their dubious fiat to keep a duly appointed United States Senator (in his (supposedly) own party!) from taking his seat.

      The move has hypocrisy, cowardice and stupidity rolled into one.  A Reid trademark.

      The frogurt is also cursed. -8.25, -6.51
