Sharp and Important Contrast: Republican vs Democrat Handling of Two Election Results This Week
In case you missed it, this past week presented an excellent opportunity to watch RI Dems and Repubs handle election results.
> At the State House, Democrats discovered that [gasp] a committee had done its job and actually voted on whether to send a bill to the House Floor, resulting in an 8-0 vote in favor. They dispatched a hatchet(wo)man to nullify the result twenty four hours later.
> During their convention Thursday, Republicans found what was undoubtedly an honest process mistake during an election that resulted in an almost-tie. They commendably refused to certify the results.
Now, party names very much not withstanding, who is better at the "demo" part of democracy?
