If Menendez quits or is removed by the US Senate, I honestly do not think he can hold out and it is very likely Christie will win a second term, whom will Christie appoint to replace him?
What are the laws in NJ regarding replacement for the US Senate?
Quite possibly his own fat traitorous self. He has presidential aspirations, after all.
Does Lautenberg have a twin?
We can call them Death Twice Over
Menendez is going no where. Dems will rally call his detractors racists, rally around him and create a reason to give him a special award for selfless lifetime service. The media will praise him relentlessly.
Remember, Menendez is a Democrat. Democrats can get away with anything. You may notice that the MSM is ignoring this whole thing. He isn’t going anywhere.
The law states that any New England state shall always have two Democrat Senators, despite the will of the people or the degree of corruption of the current officeholder. See: Massachusetts.
I don’t know what the rules are but if Christie can appoint somebody and he has discretion there is no doubt in my mind that he will appoint a democrat. With every passing moment he is showing himself to be a RINO under the BEST of circumstances.
I would love to be proved wrong but I have no confidence whatsoever.
I heard that it wasn’t GIRL prostitutes that the good Senator was buggering...
The Democrats will demand that another Democrat be appointed as his replacement, and Christie will give in to that demand.
There’s no guarantee Christie would appoint a Republican, but if he does, I recommend:
The simpering media has closed ranks around him, they will not report anything that they perceive as bad about him.
As far as Jabba the Christie, if, IF the sick pervert Menendez were to do the right thing and commit seppuku, Jabba the Christie would simply roll over like the fat whale that he is and appoint whatever other sick pervert that the sick perverted party of perverted democrats demand he appoint.
End of story.
And just in case no one noticed, I have no use for Christie.
He is a RINO.
If one looked up RINO in the dictionary, there would be a picture of Christie, along with a plethora of others that claimed an "R", in the past and present.
If one looked up Rhino...well, who knows, perhaps Christie would be the only pictorial reference provided.
Truth be told, I really don't care, since I'm convinced that those persons that would once have slept with Christie have finally realized just who it is in the bed that shat said bed.
(And as an aside, once again, Rush was correct in his assessment of Christie. He told us all that Christie was a bed shatter. But certain persons just had to pull back the sheets and look before they would believe. And now, the stink fills the room and won't go away.)
If Christie has any stones will apooint Steve Lonegen, Tea
Party organizer from Bergen County (northern NJ)
Likely a Scott Brown type RINO.
I just made all that up, I have no inside info regarding Cody or any other candidate. Cody was the interim governor after McGreevy resigned in disgrace and the dems wanted to throw Corzine under the bus in 2009 and have Cody run against Christie instead, which didn't happen. I could see Christie trying to score points with his ongoing "I hate the GOP" campaign and move Cody safely away from his reelection effort at the same time.
Some states require the Governor to pick a replacement from the same party as the vacating Senator, and it wouldn’t surprise me if NJ is such a state.
“Remember, Menendez is a Democrat. Democrats can get away with anything.”
Do you happen to remember a guy by the name of Torricelli?
