This is all new to me.

Do you mean to say a Republican won an election, the democrats didn't like it, started a Congressional fight and finally just said "screw it .. he's IN" ... and that's it ?

Basically, yes. The House did it's own "recount" of the election results, several times, changing the rules between each "count", until they got the result they wanted. It was just Kabuki Theater, because the result was already decided, the 'Rat was going to "win". Here is an example. After one count, the 'Pub was still ahead. Okay, said the 'Rats, we'll have another count, this time changing the rules. The rule they changed was that the ballot instructions for hand ballots said "Mark Within The Square" next to the name of the candidate for whom you wish to vote. If the voter made a mark that strayed just a little bit outside the square, the ballot was tossed. They played those kinds of games until the numbers favored their candidate, by all of four (yes, count 'em, four) votes. The House makes it's own rules as to who is seated. Not a lot of people know that. The actual election itself really doesn't count, at least in a close race where cheating can determine the outcome. And the 'Rats are much more accomplished cheaters than the 'Pubs.
