In Action: Queen Weed and Her Highly Selective Hearing

Monique Chartier

Good job, Operation Clean Government.

Operation Clean Government (OCG) has posted a video on YouTube of the June 1st Senate session when Senate President Teresa Paiva-Weed and Majority Leader Daniel Connors used "bully tactics" to squash a floor vote on a controversial bill sponsored by Senator Marc Cote, (D), Woonsocket and cosponsored by 18 members of the Senate. ...

Viewers might wonder in disbelief as they observe the Senate President as she does not allow Senator Cote the usual procedure of addressing his bill and therefore his microphone is never turned on. Additionally she ignores the request for a roll call vote.

... OCG has taken no position on this legislation. We strongly take issue with the leadership not allowing a committee vote, or, in this last session, a floor vote on this substantive legislation.

Comments, although monitored, are not necessarily representative of the views Anchor Rising's contributors or approved by them. We reserve the right to delete or modify comments for any reason.

This video needs to be on the news every night the week before the election. If there was nothing wrong and nothing embarrassing done, then the Senate should have nothing to hide and nothing to be embarrassed about.

Connors is so condescending, ugh.
