Busby Declared Moral Victor in CA-50 Race

San Diego County—Local school board member Francine Busby defeated her Republican rival Brian Bilbray last night in California district CA-50's special election for a seat in the Moral House of Representatives.

With 90 percent of precincts reporting, Busby led with 51,292 votes, or 45 percent. Bilbray trailed with 56,130 votes, or 50 percent.

"I can't wait to get started," said Busby, who said her moral victory hadn't truly sunk in until she received a congratulatory call from Moral Congressman Paul Hackett, of Ohio.

In recent years Moral Congress has seen a flurry of activity, passing legislation to repeal Bush's tax cuts, effect an orderly withdrawal from Iraq, support veterans, protect Social Security, ensure equal rights for gay people, bolster freedom of expression and strengthen the privacy rights of U.S. citizens. Busby says that there is still work to be done. "After all," she said, "we have a trillion dollar moral surplus to manage". Her primary legislative focus will be perfecting the universal health care bill, which is expected to pass unanimously. Moral Senator Max Cleland has already introduced a companion bill, although a late amendment opening up Texas oil fields to caribou grazing may hurt its chances in that chamber.
