Democrats to Force Congressional Debate on Ohio Results

In the wake of an allegedly flawed Ohio recount Congressional Democrats have initiated the process of forcing a floor debate in what is ordinarily a pro-forma activity, accepting the electoral college vote totals for President. Several members of the House of Representatives had already called for the challenge. Now a Senator has joined the effort.

"I have concluded that objecting to the electoral votes from Ohio is the only immediate way to bring these issues to light by allowing you to have a two-hour debate to let the American people know the facts surrounding Ohio's election,'' California Senator Barbara Boxer wrote in a letter to Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, a leader of the Democratic effort.
