Senator Paul Kirk!

by: Mike "DD4RP" Rossettie

Thu Sep 24, 2009 at 11:03:57 AM EDT


Deval Patrick has announced Paul Grattan Kirk, Jr. as the interim United States Senator from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  Kirk has served as special assistant to Sen. Kennedy and chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

This appointment has been made 1 day after the new and retroactive appointment law was passed by the senate and not the 90 days as required by law.  Due to the plague, famine and rioting in the streets Gov. Patrick as deemed this political measure "necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace."  Even if deemed an emergency, a separate 2/3 vote is required to take this action.  The Democrats are "changing the rules in the middle of the game" by ignoring the rules that already exists.  WHERE IS THE MEDIA?  DO YOUR JOB!  http://www.redmassgroup.com/sh...

Next time someone ever makes the argument "Hey, this law is only designed to apply to "X" the government would never use it for "Y."  Remember this moment.  Yes they will.  Eventually the government can and will use the authority we give them against us.

Is this being challenged? (0.00 / 0)
I know letters were written, but has there been a formal challenge to this "emergency" appointment?

Yes - Jen Nassour was on Howie Carr for 4 minutes last night. She is exploring our "options." (0.00 / 0)

So what was the emergency? Did I miss something? (0.00 / 0)
It appears that Deval Patrick's emergency purpose for having this law take effect now instead of the 90 days was that there is a lot of legislation at the federal level that needs attending to.  Is that really a qualifier for an 'emergency'?  
A law declared to be an emergency law shall contain a preamble setting forth the facts constituting the emergency, and shall contain the statement that such law is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety or convenience.

Where was the threat to the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety or convenience?

I guess Galvin didn't think it was worth sticking his neck out to challenge this.

This is all very disappointing.  I just hope it is all remembered on every election day for the next few years.
