Senate Democrats: ‘Senority This, Arlen’
The Senate dealt a blow tonight to Sen. Arlen Specter’s hold on seniority in several key committees, a week after the Pennsylvanian’s party switch placed Democrats on the precipice of a 60-seat majority.
uh huh, that’s correct, they got one right
By a voice vote, they unanimously approved a resolution allowing him to sit on the dem side of his five current committees . . .
at the kids table !
But Democrats placed Specter in one of the two most junior slots on each of the five committees for the remainder of this Congress, which goes through December 2010. Democrats have suggested that they will consider revisiting Specter’s seniority claim at the committee level only after the midterm elections next year.
yep. double secret probabtion
A relief to know we wont be forced to watch them completely kowtow to this souless arse.
