contradiction of state law under the Constitution that specifically
states "51 days." But the AG is likely to do whatever the Governor
tells him in any event, since he is directly accountable to him, but
we're going to see lawsuits galore in any event if this act of
desperation is ruled as kosher.

this -- BUT -- The Torch is apparently going to give Lautenberg a
really tough time if he throws his name into contention (the hate
towards him works both ways).
> I'd go with Pallone or Andrews as the Democrat nominee.But what to do with their House seats ? This could have repercussions
down to the legislative level. If a Dem state Senator "replaces" one
of them on a ballot (and more lawsuits if this happens as well, since
it's the same situation as with the Torch), that will cost them
parity in the State Senate adding to McGreevey's heartburn dealing
with a GOP State Senate.
A big, gigantic mess, to say the least...
