Queens, NY -- As tensions mounted all day leading up to the the TSC LIC office's proposal to bring to the floor a vote on Krage's status as a member of the TSC, a last minute deal was struck between the LIC and Astoria offices that will allow Krage to stay on as a member.
In what is being hailed as the Great Queens Caucus Compromise of 2013 (Quacromise), Nen of the Astoria office wielded her veto power over the vote proposal. The veto, a power reserved exclusively for the four permanent members of the TSC Core 4, is rarely used but was deemed necessary by the Astoria leadership in order to avert disaster amongst the TSC offices.
Jerome, who was sponsoring the vote to oust Krage, issued a statement Tuesday evening, "it would have been my great pleasure and a fitting tribute that today, on EPCOTs anniversary I would cast my vote to dispatch Krage from the TSC once and for all. However, cooler heads have prevailed and I yield to my esteemed colleague from Astoria."
Nen, while getting her usual pre-Disney pedicure told press, "I think that little shit stays! We need an opposition voice."
Some observers believe that TSC LIC didn't have the votes and Astoria stepped in with its veto power in order to prevent a losing vote and allow the TSC LIC office to save face.
It's uncertain if the move will ease tensions between the LIC and Stamford offices but for now the TSC LIC office is turning its attention to the upcoming Disney World trip just three days away. "What can I say? We go on," lamented Jerome as he escorted Midge back into the TSC office.
