    State Democrat Rep. Becky Carney (NC) explains she was confused when she voted to override the Governor's veto on fracking.


    A North Carolina state representative says she voted mistakenly to override the governor's veto of a bill to allow the shale gas exploration called 'fracking' after a late-night vote in the General Assembly.

    Democratic Rep. Becky Carney of Charlotte said she pushed the green 'yes' button at her desk Monday night to override Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue's veto of the measure that would allow shale gas exploration, before realizing she wanted to vote red, or 'no.'

    Her 'yes' vote made the tally 72-47 - just above the 60 per cent required to override in the Republican-controlled Legislature.

    Rep. Carney said she would look for ways to change the law in the future.

    Allegedly she started crying and asked the republicans for a "redo" and they were like; no, no.

    She's a fucking idiot for a) pressing the wrong button and b) having the thought to ask for a redo.

    They do allow people to change their votes if they make a mistake but not if it changes the outcome. That makes sense cause people could vote one way and if they realized after the fact a vote the other way would change the outcome, they could always change their votes.

    Sounds like a very Lame Excuse to me. Probably Lying, and thinks it will look better to her Base to be an Idiot that Can't Vote Right, than a Democrat that Supports Fracking. You know that Process that has Opened up massive new oil and Gas reserves and been a Jobs Boon to many places?

    lol
