Will McConnell Delay Seating Jones? #TaxScam
Even after Jones gets past getting certified as winning the Alabama election over an accused Trump endorsed child molestor, will he face prickly situation in DC?
Remember when the great Harry (keep your powder dry , he of the strongly worded letter) Reid courteouslydelayed vote for A CA in order to sear Republican Scott Brown?
NO TAX VOTES UNTIL THEY SEAT DOUG JONES. https://t.co/tqfxBKs6Pa

Surely McConnell will do the same?
Nah. He held up a Supreme Court nomination for months.
McConnell also botched the 2am tax bill with errors that pissed off big donors while crushing Senate norms in the name of speedy passage, wouldn't put it past him to delay seating newly elected Democrat Moore.
I call on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to listen to the people of Alabama and seat @GDouglasJones without any delay.

Many have been celebrating the election of Jones not realizing the potential for drama ahead.

First the Alabama election must be certified. Already there is talk of Moore demanding a recount.
Then he has to be seated. He should be seated immediately. Should.
Wrong and purportedly unconstitutional:https://t.co/YOJ4AUD7Rt

Fcking Trump can't even be Presidential in the traditional congratulatory greeting.
Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!
