Secretary of State William Galvin this morning called on U.S. Sen.-elect Scott Brown to “respect the rights of the majority” during a Governor Council’s meeting called to certify the results of last month’s special election.
Galvin said he was referring to speculation Brown made a sudden push yesterday to be seated quickly because of an effort to block an up-or-down vote on one of President Obama’s nominees for the National Labor Relations Board.
“I’d like to call on Senator Brown now to respect the rights of the majority,” Galvin said. “I hope that we will be able to see an up or down vote on all the nominations of President Obama and that the rights of the majority that are being respected here will be respected by the United States Senate and Senator Brown.”
I truly believe that some have been in office for so long that they can not grasp the upset in Mass with the election of Mr. Brown. And that aside, be a gracefully loser and move on! Indeed........
