Right after the Senate passed SR 4, the watered down Web casting bill previous sabotaged by Sen. John Sapien, I received a press release with this headline:
News Release: SENATOR SAPIEN HELPS TO PASS WEB STREAMING IN THE SENATE.
Bull-hooey! Sapien had five amendments lined up to force a 2/3 supermajority vote on a simple bill to use the technology the Senate had already purchased to Web cast the Senate floor session for all the state to see.
In the end, the resolution's sponsor Sen. Mark Boitano accepted the amendments, even the one that Sapien introduced to require a static camera in the back of the room in order to simulate the view of a citizen sitting in the gallery....in other words, citizens would get to see the back of the head but not who's speaking. The new resolution passed unanimously.
So, here's how it looks
, not only do you have to install software, but you can't see squat:
Sapien's seat isn't even in the frigging frame! Neither is Senate President Pro-Tem Tim Z. Jennings'! Citizens, rise-up: You've been scammed.
New headline: SENATOR SAPIEN HELPS TO PASS SELF-SERVING CRAPPY WEB STREAMING IN THE SENATE.
PS. Don't you love that "not an official record" disclosure. This is because New Mexico Senators believe they are masters of space and time. They can vote to alter their record of reality.
