Bob Turner Sworn In
Congressman Bob Turner (R-NY-9), hand on Bible, is sworn into office Thursday by U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R) in the U.S. Capitol building. Mr. Turner's wife, Peg, holds the Bible as children and grandchildren of the Turners look on.

Two days after defeating David Weprin in a special election for Anthony Weiner’s former Congressional seat, Bob Turner was sworn in today on the floor of the House of Representative.
Turner, who represents the Ninth Congressional District covering parts of Queens and Brooklyn, took the oath of office shortly before 11 a.m. Thursday morning.
In a heavily Democratic district, Turner, a Republican, defeated Weprin by eight percentage points. This is the first elected office held for the 70-year-old former media executive.
His time in office may be short as the ninth district faces possible elimination next year as part of census-mandated congressional redistricting.
