Because the GOP hasn’t humiliated Corzine *enough*…

…the Democrats are thinking about giving us another bite at that particular apple.  To summarize this… scheme:

  • Jon Corzine resigns prior to January.
  • Richard Codey becomes acting Governor (remember: no Lt. Gov before this election).
  • Frank Lautenberg (currently 85 years old) resigns as Senator.
  • Codey appoints Corzine Senator.

(H/T: The Campaign Spot)  Let me add the next step:

  • Republicans pick up an unlooked-for Senate seat via a 2010 special election.

…which is probably not Corzine’s intent; but then, neither was losing the governor’s race.  As for this prospective race… a recent loser, a Democrat, and an incumbent in 2010.  That would be perfect, thanks.

PS: I have no personal animus against Senator Lautenberg, but it’s not my fault that he’s in his mid-eighties and still decided to run for re-election in 2008.

    Well, if you don’t, then you should. Remember the Torricelli gambit the Dems played in 2002? “Senator” Lautenberg is forever tainted by the stench of that scheme.

    What IS is about New Jersey?
