Why don't they just sell the seat to the highest bidder? a la Blago!!!

Won't be any more corrupt than what they are doing.

P.S. I could give a democRATS arse who the Kennedy crook Klan think should be appointed, rather than voted in.

How much do you think he gave the Kennedy's so they would appoint him Senator? I can't wait for the bill in December saying he can run for the seat if he wants to.
