Codey Does The Right Thing

At least there’s one Democrat in Trenton who doesn’t want NJ to become Massachusetts

Senate President Richard Codey (D-Roseland) today essentially struck a death blow to Democratic efforts to change the way U.S. senate vacancies are filled.

Codey said that he would not post a bill addressing the issue in his final weeks leading the state senate.

“I do believe that whoever replaces the United States senator should be of the same party,” said Codey. “But having said that, any party could have changed this at any point in time… it just looks strictly partisan and is the wrong message at this time.”

Damn straight, sir.

It only “looks strictly partisan” because it, er, um, is strictly, shamelessly partisan.

We vote for individuals for offices, not Parties. If someone leaves office then that office is up for open election.

    What, a politician with a shred of integrity? And a Democrat at that?

    Astounding. Simply astounding.

    Codey was a decent lieutenant governor after McGreevey resigned. People across party lines respect him. I wonder if he’ll ever run for governor. Depending on the opposition, I might vote for him.

    True, Yojimbo. True.
