Probably old news for some but i was disgusted when I saw this and I had no idea that it was going on, These people pass or fail laws! but yet they don't even follow their own rules! WTF? is this seriously what this country is amounting too? Privledge with power I guess, certain people get to do do whatever they wish and abuse their responcibilites to the fullest, all on the backs of the people! The american people! for those(like me) who don't know about this, it'll make your stomach turn.

I want as many people as possible here to view this who might not have known otherwise.

Disgusting!!!! Not only should the ones doing this be held accountable but the lawmakers who are not there to cast their own votes need to be held accountable for this. Our government never ceases to amaze me....

As you stated "don't know why" I don't know why you would find this funny either these people are playing musical friggin chairs while casting multiple votes on bills, Good representation? hardley. This is horrible at best.

This is exactly why we need to throw ALL of the bums out on their @$$e$!!!

I can't believe we let these crooks get away with this carp...

I don't want to wait till next year or even 4 years from now to vote 'em out...

They should all be fired, impeached, recalled whatever it is we have to do...

Looks like a game
Maybe people will finally understand that democracy as it is executed in this world is indeed a game.

Remember kids... Voting is a very important Civic duty...!!!

Kinda makes public service ads like this one seem a tad presumptuous, don't it?

Your Honest government at work...

Oh GOD anyone who has faith in the legal system is a J O K E

It's the day and age of tyranny and anarchy, in all forms, just get ready.

Agreed to all above I just want to get this information out a bit for people to see what kind of crap goes on behind closed doors.

The scary thing is that this same thing seems to be going on on a larger scale too , ie the first Bush election scandal, your right the bumbs do need thrown out on their rears.

Wow that's a bit disturbing.

Maybe they need to use a more secure voting system, because it's current iteration seems to be used quite flippantly.

What is with all the empty seats at this voting session? This is like a person punching a time card for another employee who has decided to take the day off!

This is our tax dollars at work, people!

It goes to show how decisions for us are made by a few!

Absolutely frightening!

Well to be fair it's necessary because sometimes they don't break for lunch, dinner and don't have bathroom breaks. lol

Go democracy

Hi alyosha,
Very interesting 4 min vid there..

We are all being "DUPED" in this country. We have no real abilities to thwart these kind of things, but the PTB should get on top of this and create room for a more "Honest" and "Concerned" group of individuals to properly cast their votes for the welfare of the public as a whole and not for their own personal agendas..... Truly freaking sad!!!
Not only are they lying when they cast those votes, they are getting paid to do it!! With our Tax $'s....."Bastards!" ..... And we were blown away with the Bernie Madoff scandal? But as you had stated, "What goes on behind closed door's?" Now we "Kind Of" know......

Thanks for sharing...

This is my state that they are discussing in this and I have to say that I am absolutely outraged. This is flagrant dishonesty. I'm so angry that I can not see straight. I'm going to write a rather heated letter to my representative, not that I think it will do any good.

This is just disgusting. It makes me want to tear my hair out that they would do things like this. It completely goes against the spirit of democracy. If someone isn't there to cast their vote when the vote comes up, then they should be marked as absent and abstaining for the vote.

The contemptible wench they interviewed says that things like this have to be done of necessity? That's absolute BS. Several of the illegitimate votes that were cast in the video weren't for people who weren't there, but were for people who simply didn't press their button fast enough.

And even if the person is there, they should not have other people voting on their behalf. If they aren't there, then they should simply be marked as not present and abstained as I mentioned earlier. I'm going to have to investigate to see what can be done about this, but I wager it's not much. For my part, I'm going to try and get this message out to as many people as I know.

That is amazing. I'm not American but if I were I would make sure as many people as possible saw this video. I guess 'vote early and vote often' doesn't just apply to Chicago anymore.

man they act like children trying to steel from the cookie jar, pretending to be lagging about it's like something from Monty Python

This video needs some sort of sports dialog giving a play by play

.....I don't know what to say......

I'm dumbfounded. Why do we even have a vote? It seems it serves no purpose at all.... I can't believe I just witnessed that. I would love for just one of them explain why to the rest of the nation. It's bad enough if our representatives aren't there to vote on what's good or bad for the people they represent but to allow someone else to cast the vote?

The bottom line is if your not there, your vote cannot be represented period.

Thank you 'aloysha' for bring this to everybodies attention. Very disturbing but definitely a S & F for you.
