Blues=Life BS: Mickey Mouse New Jersey election (86* d) RE: BS: Mickey Mouse New Jersey election 02 Oct 02

Jed, You said:

"However, as I understand it - if Torricelli resigns his seat now, and a new Senator is appointed to replace him, the issue goes away - because the incumbent Senator is automatically on the ballot, if he/she is running. Am I corect about that?"

As I understand it, no, you are not correct. The candidate is The Torch, not The Current Senator. Torch won the primary, Torch is the Democrats' choice, and Torch is the candidate. Furthermore, Nerd, you said:

"Also, one thing that rankles is that Forrester's cronies have been after Torricelli to resign for ages, saying his behavior makes him unfot to be a senator. When he resigns, they say "no! you can't resign!" Obviously, the risk of an unfit senator is worth it for them, if it increases their own chance to win."

The problem is, he has NOT resigned, nor has he admitted to any wrong-doing. All he has said is that he will not be responsible for losing the majority in the senate. Hey, I might even support a ballot change if Torch said, "Your right, I'm guilty, and I'm not worthy to be a Senator. Take me away, I'll pay for my crimes." But he didn't say that. Did you hear the speech? I was in my car all day, and heard it 3 times! It made me sick! It was full of "Me, Me, Me. I'm Great. I've given so much." No regret, no remorse, no apology.

He is an embarrasment to the party.
