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.
