Democratically elected Democratic U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota is rushed to hospital with a suspected stroke, leaving a glaring gap of one in the Dems control of Congress next January, if he doesn’t recover.
Should the worst happen, South Dakota law allows the Republican governor of South Dakota to replace him with a Republican of his choosing, giving the Republicans control of Congress once again.
Here is yet another fine example of true American democracy in action.
Latest news is Senator Johnson has not suffered a stroke, but the doctors don’t know the cause of his illness.
Perhaps, in the circumstances, they should not rule out – Polonium-210?
