Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery is catching-on in Wingnuttia; or it could be that if you let a brat get away with something, all the other brats will try it, too:
“…Republican leaders confirmed Sen. Jim Brewster of Allegheny County will not be permitted to take the oath of office Tuesday when the legislature returns to launch a new two-year session.”
Yes there is a lawsuit, there’s always a lawsuit, but the point is that Brewster won the election and it was certified.
UPDATE 1: the Philadelphia Inquirer reports:
“Amid high emotions and partisan fingerpointing, Republicans also took the rare step of removing the Democratic lieutenant governor, John Fetterman, from presiding over the session. They apparently did so because they did not believe Fetterman was following the rules and recognizing their legislative motions.”
