A local supporter of congressional term limits applauded the lifetime appointment of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.
Gorsuch was appointed by the Senate 54-45 after a rule change permitting appointments to the Supreme Court without meeting the traditional 60 vote minimum.
This turn of events has reportedly thrilled Jerald Shortview, a local supporter of congressional term limits who believes senators and congressional representatives should serve for a limited number of terms as to avoid sustaining corruption.
The irony that Republican senators, who garnered 11 million fewer votes than their Democratic counterparts during the 2016 election, forced through the nominee of a president, who lost the popular vote by 3 million votes, wasn’t not lost on Shortview.
At press time, an amateur satirist and journalism school dropout was unsure if he had used who or whom correctly.
