What We the People won't do, maybe some judge in northern Virginia can hand them.
This is almost shameful:
Virginia Democrats say they will sue to share control of the state SenateSaslaw is a worm. So this should surprise no one.

Richmond — There are those who question the wisdom of Virginia Democrats, who on Monday vowed to sue Republicans for the right to share control of the state Senate.
Because this month’s elections left the Senate evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, the GOP has relied on Howard’s analysis to assert that Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) will be able to vote on organizational matters — giving the party control of the chamber and power over its committees.
The party announced its intention on Monday but declined to say when it plans to file the suit, what court it will file in or even disclose its attorney.
The dispute leaves control of the chamber in doubt less than two months before the General Assembly returns in January for its 60-day session. Legislators will consider thousands of bills, including the state’s two-year budget and new lines for the state’s 11 congressional districts.
In the meantime, both Sen. Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax) and Sen. Thomas K. Norment Jr. (R-James City) are calling themselves “majority leader.” [link]
Give his lawyers enough money and watch them remove We the People from the process all together. We are, to them, such a pesky annoyance.
