Reid claims Constitutional authority to reject Burris!
Under the Constitution, “We determine who sits in the Senate. And the House determines who sits in the House. So there’s clearly legal authority for us to do whatever we want to do. This goes back for generations.”
Wow- Reid is reaching for the Constitution when it’s convenient to play the rules against State rules governing Senator replacement.
“Asked if there was room for a possible settlement, Reid said, “I’m an old trial lawyer. There is always room to negotiate.”
“New members will be sworn in on Tuesday with the opening of the new Congress.”
“Reid called Burris a “tainted appointment” because of the governor’s alleged misconduct, although he said he did not know of anything wrong with Burris himself.”
Suddenly guilt by association works for Reid yet he overlooks Obama’s questionable associations with indicted criminals and isn’t sure if Obama is a Natural Born Citizen because Obama’s birth certificate has NEVER been validated by any type of authority. Reid, then by association, has claimed responsibility for the appointment of a candidate for the US Presidency, who is NOT a Natural Born Citizen..and has put the United States in the position of a Constitutional crisis. imo..
