House Republicans Refuse to Seat Charniele Herring

with one comment

Defying the will of Alexandria and Fairfax voters, the House Republican majority refused to seat Delegate-Elect Charniele Herring this afternoon after a nearly 40-minute floor debate.

House Republican Leader Morgan Griffith disregarded Herring’s official electoral certification from the State Board of Elections, leaving the 46th House District indefinitely without representation as the 2009 session of the General Assembly begins.
