Excuse me everybody, but I'm bored and although I could maybe find this information on Google or something, I would rather ask you guys! Get more of an all-round view? I have looked in one of my books ("Parliament/Congress" by Bradshaw and Pring, but no mention). If that's OK, I heard on the BBC radio here in the UK the other day that "Washington, the home of American democracy was unique in that it did not have an elected representative in the Senate (or Congress)". Is that true? And is there any historical or practical reason for it if it is true? Seems strange that it may be excluded.
