Selected, not elected.
When Kerry was running for President and Romney might be appointing the successor, the law was changed to put it to a vote. When Romney was out and Dead Red Ted Kennedy needed to be replaced, the Rats needed to make sure that there were 60 Democrats in the Senate and the law was changed to select-not-elect the replacement.
The Culture of Corruption continues.
Brown has a chance.
Should we just file criminal charges against him now to save time?
Bawney Fwank disapointed.
good, all the easier to defeat him in the election.
Mo is a placeholder until the Mass. Democrat Party anoints a candidate.
“He will serve until the June 25 special election.”
And I should care about this because ...................?
Wow... not a Kennedy???
Candidates for the Senate post in the upcoming election include current Congressmen “Fast Eddie” Markey and,
it is strongly rumored, Stephen Lynch—both D. Brown also considering it tho some think he may try for Governor in 2014.
Hmmm . . .
Up to now, the only African-American in the Senate is Tim Scott, a Republican.
The Dems couldn’t let that pass, so they had to appoint one of their own. So sorry, Barney.
Just a thought.
Yes, but apparently he’s a RINO, so he should be opposed at all costs.
And by Bizarro World Calculus that’s worse than a Democrat.
Governors have aids?
“Governors have aids?”
LOL. I’m sure lots of them do!
Its massataxes, conservatives don’t have a dog in the fight
My “just a thought” is any real governor would appoint himself, this shows what a weak figurehead Patrick is.
No, and we never did..! That's what makes the whole thing with Romney so hard to understand....For me anyway...
But I thought McPain was also an odd choice for conservatives...
