House Speaker Vote

 

House speaker vote

I heard Allen West called to vote for speaker of the House…not once, but twice.

I looked up the new House representatives, and Allen West was not listed. Link to Florida new house members

At the end of the roll call…non voters were called. Alan West was not called.

Alan West received 2 votes.

Colin Powell, Allen West among those receiving votes for House speaker

Boehner got 220 out of 426 votes cast.

John Boehner was elected speaker.
