I believe the law says when a vacancy is “declared”, not when the vacancy actually occurs.

Yes, the vacancy OCCURED earlier this week, but Manchin is soooo busy trying to comfort the widow Byrd, he won’t get around to actually DECLARING the vacancy until after the July 3 date.

If I’m wrong, someone correct me—but I believe that is the version the ‘rats are using to avoid an election in November.

They suck.

Another link where the shell game is discussed. The Washington Post appears to be trying hard to point out ambiguities in the law.

The “widow Byrd” predeceased her husband.

The Governor must be “comforting” somebody else.

I believe the law says when a vacancy is “declared”, not when the vacancy actually occurs. The word "declared" does not appear in the law. The word was slickly substituted for "occurs" in articles "explaining" the supposed dilemma.

The vacancy occurred the moment Byrd died and they know it.

He can't be comforting the widow.....his wife died in 2006 I believe.
