Had they asked the same questions they asked yesterday they would’ve realized Singer’s intentions to resign in 2 weeks, way sooner than Greco, the reason they “disqualified” him… This was just classic scheming.

It was an acclimation vote simply because someone motioned for it – no one had a problem with that vice speaker becoming speaker. This time senators took their prerogative to ask questions and didn’t like what they heard.

And I’m glad I graduated too because this is all so incredibly stupid… but that being said, this procedure is not normal, the very minutes you posted prove that. The Vice President did not preside, there was no questions or debate and only a vote by acclamation. And all of that was right after Tisa resigned. Everything they did the other day they just made up.

Unfortunately for those who got 3 votes in this selection, “assume the role” has been viewed as temporary in the past until confirmed.

But classic GUSA no one cares until hiding behind procedure is the only escape route you have for incompetence. So glad I graduated, never looking back…

Does that mean the House can vote NOT to let Biden be President if Obama resigns? RNC called, they want a Tisa-Ramadan banner for their office…

And @NedStark: “Tell me why it is more noble to change the rules at dinner than to call a proper vote of removal on the speaking floor” :)

Thank you for your note on the number of votes, we have made the correction.

“Siegler beat him and two other candidates to win the ballot election.” We state that it’s Emilie + 2 others, which equals a total of 3 other candidates.

Greco was voted to NOT be confirmed 13 votes to 9 and in the election he ran against 3 other candidates, not 2
