Specter denied senioriority....

STABBED in the back...but a traitor is usually hung at dawn...I think he gets off easy.
Wonder how he feels about being dissed after a promise that he would hold on to seniority....
Specter is learning what it means to be a party member....A DEMOCRAT PARYT MEMBER.
This old fool should have retired to take up golf or checkers...but he thinks he has the 'stuff' to remain in politics.
I hope it is the end of him.

Senate Democrats Deny Specter Committee Seniority
By Paul Kane
The Senate dealt a blow tonight to Sen. Arlen Specter's hold on seniority in several key committees, a week after the Pennsylvanian's party switch placed Democrats on the precipice of a 60-seat majority.

In a unanimous voice vote, the Senate approved a resolution that added Specter to the Democratic side of the dais on the five committees on which he serves, an expected move that gives Democrats larger margins on key panels such as Judiciary and Appropriations.

But Democrats placed Specter in one of the two most junior slots on each of the five committees for the remainder of this Congress, which goes through December 2010. Democrats have suggested that they will consider revisiting Specter's seniority claim at the committee level only after the midterm elections next year.
