Two turncoat Blue Dogs Senators announced today that they will caucus with the Republicans giving control to the GOP.
GOP gains effective control of Washington Senate
OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Two Democrats in the Washington state Senate abandoned their caucus Monday, vowing to work with Republicans to control the chamber and push conservative budgeting principles.
Democratic Sens. Rodney Tom of Bellevue and Tim Sheldon of Potlatch said the bipartisan cooperation would drive better policies. Under the new plan, Republicans will chair six committees, including the panel that controls the state budget, while Democrats will control another six committees. The parties will split control of three other panels, though Sheldon is on two of those committees.
This stings. Tim Sheldon is a Blue Dog who has long been a thorn in the side of Senate Democrats. I'm not as familiar with the Blue Dog Rodney Tom.
I'm sure that Democrats who voted for or worked for those two fakers feel betrayed by their treachery, and deceit.
