GOP Refusing to Seat Democrat Who Won By One Vote

GOP leaders in Kentucky won’t commit to seating a Democrat who ousted a Republican incumbent by just one vote in a contested election.

Democrat Jim Glenn was certified by the State Board of Elections as the winner- he told the AP officials have already assigned him an office, parking space and nameplate.

But incoming GOP House Speaker David Osborne would not commit to seating him, saying it is “solely the prerogative of the House of Representatives to seat a member.”
