Breakin’ the law, breakin’ the law!
Here’s what I don’t get. Check out this graf of the Post story on Torricelli’s impending retirement from the 2002 race:
New Jersey has a 48-day deadline for replacing a state-wide nominee on the ballot, and it’s only 36 days until the election. But party officials are hopeful that the state Supreme Court would allow Democrats to replace Torricelli on the ballot with a new nominee.
How can they be hopeful? What exactly is the state’s constitution worth if a party can change the rules when they’re down in the polls? This is very, very disturbing.
