Senate Dems prepared to use one part of the Constitution to invalidate anotherThe Al Franken campaign, with the blessing of Senate Democratic (and Majority) leader Harry Reid, is contemplating taking their case to count absentee ballots rejected on Election Day to thwart a legal election victory by Norm Coleman to the Senate. Their “justification” is that Article I Section 5 of the Constitution gives the power to judge the elections and returns of Senate candidates exclusively to the Senate.
Never mind that the decision by the Minnesota Canvassing Board to reject those ballots in accordance with Minnesota law is wholly consistent with the 17th Amendment. Thanks to “NoRunnyEggs”
Congress raised the compensation for cabinet positions this past term, of which Clinton was a member; therefore, she technically can’t serve in the cabinet of the Executive branch.
Article I Section 6:
No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time; and no Person holding any Office under the United States, shall be a Member of either House during his Continuance in Office.
