BREAKING: Vermont Senator Leahy Taken to the Hospital

Out of an abundance of caution, the Attending Physician recommended that he be taken to a local hospital for observation.

CNBC is reporting:

Sen. Patrick Leahy, the Vermont Democrat set to preside over the upcoming impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, was taken to a Washington hospital for evaluation Tuesday, his spokesman said.

“This evening, Senator Leahy was in his Capitol office and was not feeling well,” his spokesman David Carle said in a written statement.

“He was examined in the Capitol by the Attending Physician,” Carle said.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the Attending Physician recommended that he be taken to a local hospital for observation, where he is now, and where he is being evaluated.”

Now, what does this mean? If indeed Senator Leahy is ill, and cannot fulfill his duties and must be replaced, there would be a special election.

But in the meantime, the Republicans would control the US Senate again.

Here is the statute from the State of Vermont website:

Title 17 : Elections
Chapter 053 : Vacancies
(Cite as: 17 V.S.A. § 2621)
§ 2621. Vacancy in office of U.S. Senator or Representative

(a) If a vacancy occurs in the office of U.S. Senator or U.S. Representative, the Governor shall call a special election to fill the vacancy. His or her proclamation shall specify a day for the special election and a day for a special primary, pursuant to section 2352 of this title.

(b) The special election shall be held not more than six months from the date the vacancy occurs, except that if the vacancy occurs within six months of a general election, the special election may be held the same day as the general election provided the ballots for the special election are able to be distributed by the deadline set forth in section 2479 of this title. (Added 1977, No. 269 (Adj. Sess.), § 1; amended 2019, No. 67, § 18.)

Democrats: Proud Election Deniers since 1977

Democrat election denial is vast

Published

Following the 2020 presidential election,  Chris Cillizza, CNN’s recently fired politics editor, observing a Quinnipiac poll, stated that “76% of self-identified Republicans… said they believe there was ‘widespread fraud in the 2020 election.’” Yet, more Democrats, 78%, believe that the 2016 presidential election was “stolen.” So which party has the greater percentage of election deniers?

Here is a long list, complied by The Republican National Committee, that pinpoints the vast extent of Democrat election denial:
