  • I read this...it seems very fishy.


    The letter acknowledges the state changed its succession law in 2004 to require a special election within five months to fill any vacancy. At the time, legislative Democrats -- with a wide majority in both chambers -- were concerned because then-Republican Gov. Mitt Romney had the power to directly fill any vacancy created as Democratic Sen. John Kerry ran for president


    So once again they want to change the rules so that it suits their purpose.  I wish I could do that! But Officer NOW the speed limt sign says 80mph...I changed it so I could go that fast!"...yeah, don't think it would work.

  • Oh, like anyone is going to decline a dying man's wish. They will chalk it up to his lifetime of servitude to the people of Mass. and pass it without nary a peep from Republicans, because after all, they don't need them. Cheating is only ok if it's Democrats doing it. I would love to see the libs defend this. If you are liberal and are ok with this, would you be ok with it if it were a Republican asking for the same consideration?
