Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

It seems that this race may not be over yet. Read this. It seems that after a “recanvassing” of the vote. the conservative Doug Hoffman is only a little over 3,000 votes down, and the absentee votes have not yet been counted. Over 10,000 absentee ballots were sent out.

Because of the number of absentee ballots, the election results have not yet been certified. Despite this, and because Hoffman had conceeded and was not contesting the preliminary results, House Speaker Pelosi was legally able to swear in the Democrat. If the Absentee balllots give the race to Hoffman, Owens will have to leave the House.

This could possibly raise a constitutional question. The Healthcare bill won by 2 votes. What would have happened had Hoffman been in the House, or had there been no representative from New York’s 23d district?

If Hoffman should be declared the winner, and should the American People keep kicking up a fuss, I sincerely doubt that any sort of conference bill on healthcare will make it through the House.
