Those sneaky rat-bastards in the Democrat-controlled California Assembly prove they really are criminals by "getting rid of the evidence" and purging their votes on AB23 the offshore oil drilling bill. And it wasn't just an accident or computer glitch, the July 24 vote has been officially expunged.
"Republicans suspect the move was made on behalf of Speaker Karen Bass, D-Baldwin Vista, who supposedly did not want a roll call when the defeat of the measure became apparent. Democrats insist the purge was for the benefit of Republican leader Sam Blakeslee of San Luis Obispo, whose vote for the oil-drilling plan as part of the budget deal was not likely to play well in his coastal district." or so states the San Francisco Chronicle. In the Capitol Weekly, Blakeslee's office denied those charges.
Did they really think this would go unnoticed? As Chuck DeVore, R-Irvine says in the San Francisco Chronicle article "It's not like Al Gore hadn't invented the Internet yet or we didn't have instant replay."
