(Dec. 29, 2012) — Have you ever wondered just how fast our Government can work when it puts its mind to it?
HJ 122 was impressively introduced to the House on Dec. 18th and passed, and then introduced to the Senate on Dec. 20th where it passed, and has now been signed by Obama. WOW!
Of course what makes this so interesting is that the Supreme Court of the United States is hearing Judy v. Obama on Jan. 4th,2013 in conference and the Electoral College vote was Jan. 6th, whereupon the Supreme Court might have conferenced prior to the Electoral College Vote counted.
Now with this resolution that has changed and the Electoral College vote will be counted Jan. 4th, 2013 instead of Jan. 6th, 2013.
One Hundred Twelfth Congress
of the United States of America
AT THE SECOND SESSION
Begun and held at the City of Washington on Tuesday,
the third day of January, two thousand and twelve
Establishing the date for the counting of the electoral votes for President and Vice President cast by the electors in December 2012.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. DATE FOR COUNTING 2012 ELECTORAL VOTES IN CONGRESS.
The meeting of the Senate and House of Representatives to be held in January 2013 pursuant to section 15 of title 3, United States Code, to count the electoral votes for President and Vice President cast by the electors in December 2012 shall be held on January 4, 2013 (rather than on the date specified in the first sentence of that section).
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Vice President of the United States and President of the Senate.
Text of the Resolution: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/112/hjres122/text
There are no co-sponsors for this bill, so we are led to believe what? Earlier was better then later? Of course January 6th, 2013 is a Sunday; however, whenever a holiday or Sunday affects the Government, don’t we all know that the next or following available day is usually the best option for relief rather then the preceding day?
Actually, it might not make a difference because any Electoral College vote made for Obama is subject to being dismissed according to the Electoral College Act or (ECA) as one of my prior post elaborated upon.
Electors WARNED of vote being dismissed : http://codyjudy.blogspot.com/2012/12/scotus-election-challenge-update_15.html
Grounds for Rejecting Electoral Votes Submitted by an Elector Who Has Section 2 Status – B- Post Appointment Grounds – 1. The elector cast his or her vote in violation of constitutional and federal statutory requirements; for example, the elector did not vote d. for candidates who are constitutionally qualified to hold the President’s and Vice-President’s office.
All the Electors were warned prior to their votes being cast Dec 17th, 2012 through all of the Secretaries of State who passed the message on to them dutifully, therefore the United States Supreme Court can most assuredly account for Electors being for-warned and informed that a vote for an ineligible candidate can and will be dismissed. This information was also passed on and recorded in Judy v. Obama 12-5276 being heard January 4th, 2013.
Thanks for passing it on, supporting or contributing in any way you feel you can.
