Response to McCain petition to seat Brown

Dear Senator:

I received your email today asking me to sign a petition to seat Senator-Elect Brown as soon as possible.

First you must understand that the Massachusetts Secretary of State is bound by laws (not rules or conventions) that require delay in certifying an election until all votes have been counted.

Second, the remedy lies in your hands, you could I suppose suspend the Senate rules or convention that requires certification before seating a Senator elect.

As you were the standard bearer of the borrow and spend Republicans in the last Presidential election, complaints about "out of control spending" by the Democrats do little to advance your cause.

Finally as you have been the recipient of Government health care for most of your career, I am offended by your complaint about government interference in health care. Shame on you!

Sent to Senator John McCain, January 20, 2010
