Why is the Senate not in session yet to vote for SB 5?
First, we thought it was because we thought they were waiting for the union chanting and singing to stop.
Turns out Senator Chris Widener (R-Springfield) had a fundraiser scheduled tonight, and at least one Senator is attending Governor Kasich’s showing of the pro-charter propaganda film “Waiting for Superman.” Senate Minority Leader Capri Cafaro (D) said in the chamber to the pro-union crowd that she expects session to start at 8 p.m. tonight.
I couldn’t make this up if I tried. The Senate is in recess for a fundraising and a movie break. No word if Kasich is giving them cots and juice boxes, too.
