SUING THEIR WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE -- (House of Representatives - October 07, 2004)

(Mr. PITTS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. PITTS. Mr. Speaker, most people think this election will be close. Already, the Democrat party has assembled a legal team and campaign account to file a series of lawsuits on Election Day. Democrats are again preparing to sue their way to the White House by raising money to challenge election results.

This is not a new tactic for liberals, and that is what John Kerry and John Edwards are, the first and fourth most liberal Members of the Senate.

This political strategy has been used by liberals for years, to win by litigation what they cannot win through legislation. They have used this method to enact a large part of their social agenda in past years.

Mr. Speaker, it is easier to manipulate words, to dupe a few liberal unelected judges than to collectively fool the American people, but the American people are on to it. We hold elections for a reason: to allow the people to choose their own leaders, not lawyers and judges.

This should not be another ploy to challenge our democratic process.
