During the convention, Biden (and probably Pelosi) are physically in Denver, therefore under the jurisdiction of Abp. Chaput. If they should attempt to receive communion in the Denver archdiocese, it's Abp. Chaput's authority which counts.

That's why it's important that Chaput has responded swiftly and decisively. If Wuerl would only do the same ...
