Reid Cites "Legal Authority" To Bar Illinois Pick
Probably Reid has a valid legal point, but I find it a bit alarming to hear a senator on Meet The Press say, "We determine who sits in the Senate. And the House (of Representatives) determines who sits in the House. So there's clearly legal authority for us to do whatever we want to do. This goes back for generations."
In case you missed the scary part...
"So there's clearly legal authority for us to do whatever we want to do."
Oh yeah, who wouldn't want an omnipotent Harry, smiling creepily while he makes that statement.
