    What if Weiner quits?  Won't he still be on the ballot?  Even if the poll shows people think he should quit that may not be the case in a few days. He attended an HIV forum at the GMHC after his press conference and was the most well received of the candidates. I think this is what is really pissing the other candidates off.

      Not sure what the rules are. Should be plenty of time to print the ballots. hey, they don't "print" them anymore, it's electronic. So how much time does the Board of Elections need to set up a ballot? Would 24 hours do?

      Pretty sure the law has not caught up to electronic reality. But even under the old ways, damn, we had machines. Not much had to be printed, one "ballot" per machine? So I bet they can "take his name off" if he gets out in the next couple of weeks.
