D.C. Delegate Loses Vote in House Committee of the Whole E-mail
Washington Post reporter Ben Pershing reports that D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton failed in her attempt to keep a vote in the Committee of the Whole of the U.S. House of Representatives. The new Republican majority in the House stripped the nonvoting delegates of the District of Columbia and the territories of this vote that had been granted when the Democrats took control of the House in 2008.  Delegate Norton had had a vote in the Committee of the Whole when the Democrats controlled the House during the Clinton Administration.  In both cases, though, her vote did not count when it would have been deciding.  In other words, this is only a paltry token given to the United States' colonies and does not represent having full democracy or a right to self-government through full representation in our national legislature.  For more, read Ben Pershing's article Of January 5, 2011.

Delegate Norton Seeks to Keep Her Partial Vote E-mail

Washington Post reporter Ben Pershing blogged on November 16, 2010 that D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton is seeking to keep her Committee of the Whole vote in the new House in which Democrats will be in the minority.  Unfortunately, without statehood, which would give D.C. a full voting Congressional delegation, any vote our delegate has is temporary and can be revoked at any time by Congress.  Delegate Norton had a similar vote in the Committee of the Whole when the Democrats controlled the House in the 1990's but later lost it and only regained in a few years ago.  History may repeat itself again.

The D.C.
