Corruptocrat Watch

Looks as though if a Massachusetts Dem wins a special federal election, they get it certified ASAP if the vote is needed in Congress. However, were Scott Brown to defeat Martha Coakley, Democrats are already suggesting any election certification could be delayed. Kennedy's current fill in intends to support the issue with a yes vote no matter what.

In contrast, Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-Lowell) was sworn in at the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 18, 2007, just two days after winning a special election to replace Martin Meehan. In that case, Tsongas made it to Capitol Hill in time to override a presidential veto of the expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Yesterday, Brown, who has been closing the gap with Coakley in polls and fund raising, blasted the political double standard.

“This is a stunning admission by Paul Kirk and the Beacon Hill political machine,” said Brown in a statement.
