Republican Scott Brown called on Democrat Martha Coakley to make a stand against Senator Paul Kirk’s scandalous asmission that he won’t step down from his assigned post until after the Obamacare vote.
This week Brown charged that Democrats were seeking to delay certification of the election winner to ensure that if he wins, he can’t be the deciding vote against a nationalized health care bill.

SCOTT BROWN: “The latest development is Senator Kirk, the interim senator which we manipulated senate the succession issue to make sure that we had that 60th vote to kind of ram things through, well he announced today that he’s not resigning and that the Secretary of State thinks he needs to wait until every single ballot is counted and recounted and triply counted, and they’re not going to certify me until after the healthcare debate. Now, you know what that does, that makes me sick to my stomach. […] We called on her [Martha Coakley] to stand up to the manipulation of another vote in Washington.
We’ve called on her tonight to stand up and say ‘no, no, whoever wins, you certify them right away.”
Majority Leader Harry Reid has said he won’t seat the winner of the election until at least after January 29th.
This will allow democrats to ram through their nationalized health care legislation before Scott Brown is seated if he wins on Tuesday.
