High court says it won’t hear ‘demon chipmunk’ read

The state Supreme Court says it won’t listen to recordings of a state House computer cranked up to top speed and reading bills in a garbled voice some have described as a “demon chipmunk” when it hears arguments between a freshman Democratic lawmaker and Republican House Speaker Philip Gunn next month…

…”I’m disappointed … that they don’t want to hear the actual warp-speed reading that we contend violates the constitution,” Hughes said Thursday. “I doubt very seriously the Supreme Court would allow me to read my oral arguments at warp speed without claiming it violates their rules and the integrity of their chamber.”
