Posted on 01/16/2010 1:26:07 PM PST by freespirited
Lawyers are being positioned even over the weekend to file a legal action quickly in support of the GOP candidate in the Massachusetts special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy should he succeed in defeating a hand-picked Democratic successor.
There is concern that since a victory by Republican Scott Brown over Attorney General Martha Coakley in the battle to replace Kennedy would threaten President Obama's health care plan in the U.S. Senate Brown has promised to be a key vote against the plan Democrats in power would delay certifying the election and getting him seated in the Senate.
Polls heading into the weekend show the surge of support for Brown is continuing, to the point that President Obama has tentatively scheduled a trip to Massachusetts to try to salvage Coakley's campaign.
Officials with Gun Owners of America aren't waiting. They announced today that they have instructed their attorneys to "prepare a lawsuit to force the Senate to seat Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown immediately should he, as seems increasingly likely, succeed in his Jan. 19 bid for the Senate seat."
The statement from Gun Owners executive officer Larry Pratt said, "Recent polls showing Brown pulling even with anti-gun zealot Martha Coakley have led to threats by current placeholder Paul Kirk and Democratic operatives to block the will of the people of Massachusetts until the Senate has adopted the ObamaCare bill."

How about we go back and delay Hussein’s swearing in.
It’s too bad we couldn’t send the entire Senate down
to Haiti on one of the first planes and let them fend
for themselves for a week, I think it would make a
big difference in their attitudes.
Good for the GOA. Log onto their site and think about joining.
I would rather it be an outpost in Afganistan.
Warms the cockle of your heart, it does.
The stuff “history repeats” is made of.
From the home of the first Tea Party - the people rise again to save the country
I emailed this to everyone - spread the cheer.
(Just thinking of the great gnashing of teeth, wringing of hands, going on in DC as the Rats trip over themselves trying to avoid this train wreck...
You're a nice guy. I would rather it be an outpost in Antarctica.
Absolutely. But we are giving cess pools a bad name comparing them to the current US Senate.
So Brown has the respect of Gun Owners of America, huh? That’s FANTASTIC!
Now....If we just had something beside gutless wimps in the ranks of the GOP, this suit would have been planned by the demoncrat-leaning cheek-spreading RNC...
I said Afghanistan because I think having to take up arms to save their sorry hides would do them a lot of good.
If the rats want the capital surrounded by us then they can stall seating Brown but it is at their peril to do that!
