Shocking comment from Lautenberg (sp?)ClydeTri

Heard a shocking comment that was attributed to Frank Lautenberg in NJ. He told voters to vote for one of the two candidates and not to worry about the process, that the process wasnt important. What? The "process" is the most important thing in our system, not the individual candidates....It is our process that we must protect.

Have you heard him talk? He mumbles a lot with slurred speech.

He seems very incoherent at times, possibly the onset of Alzheimer's.

Pretty sad how N.J. manipulated the system.

... I am not sure what the law that caused all of the fuss exactly says.

If the law was designed a long time ago and was designed to protect the candidate from a last minute switch - rendering it impossible to get the word out, then I could care less. The law should change with the times in this case.

However, if the law was designed to protect the other party from a last minute swictch-a-roo then what they did was wrong.

Anyone, who is non-partisaned, know what the purpose of "that law" was?

YOu dont change the rules during the game ....if it needed to be changed you change it when an election is not in progress..and, it is the job of the legislature to make law, not the bench.
