  •  I meant it as a joke. (9+ / 0-)

    But i believe that certain states allow for recall of senators, not all.  And I don't know if New Jersey is one of them, but I wasn't serious wrt the proposition.  It was meant as a little dig at the notion of impeachment.

    all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

      Certain states may have state laws on the books for recalling U.S. Senators or Representatives, but they've never been tested at the federal level—and given that the Constitution says nothing to permit the recall of Senators, there is absolutely no reason to believe that a recall would be allowed to proceed in federal court.
