One US Senator who will certainly not be standing up to challenge Bush's bogus Ohio results is the Senator from Massachussets, John Kerry.
"While I am deeply concerned about the issues being highlighted by my colleagues in Congress and citizens across the country and support their efforts to highlight the need to ensure voting rights," Mr. Kerry said in a statement, "I will not be joining their protest of the Ohio electors."In fact, Kerry will not even be in DC for the vote - he is busy pursuing his lobbyists' interests in the Middle East.
As the NYT piece makes clear, the GOP is trying to intimidate Democrats by threatening to make them objects of ridicule in the GOP-controlled mainstream media. The only Democrat reportedly considering an objection is Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California.
