Demented CA State Senator still votes!

Most folks don’t know that one of the California Democrat State Senators suffers from apparent dementia. She seems to not know what is going on around her. Yet she still holds office, draws her salary and has highly paid handlers to take care of her.

But the amazing thing is that she still votes. Her chief overseer is Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. When he needs an extra vote on a bill (as happened recently on FOUR bills) he sends for her to meet in some quiet alcove, where her vote, directed by Steinberg, is duly recorded. See this SACRAMENTO BEE story.

Ah yes — the party of compassion. The party of fair play. The party of Democracy.

  1. I find it interesting that the California Constitution anticipates such situations… (and) “shall provide for the disqualification of electors while mentally incompetent,” but the section has never been invoked.

    Any chance the GOP can implement this clause to disqualify the current majority? There seems to be ample evidence of ineptitude.

  3. I saw the headline for this story and was sure this was going to be about Sen. Mark Leno.
