  •  For that to happen he would have to be a resident (0+ / 0-)

    of both places on election day - and likely before. I don't think someone can run without being a resident - nor do I think that he could continue representing a district after he changed his residence.

    •  He could pull a Lugar or a Bono Mack (0+ / 0-)

      And list a Cleveland residence while not actually living there.

      •  Lugar? (0+ / 0-)

        The difference is that he is declaring his residency to be two places.

        What you are saying Lugar and Bono Mach did was to declare an address in their state where they really were not living. (Wasn't that an issue with Santorum as well?)

          Lugar claiming his residence as a family farm while only staying hotels when in state is a bad press day, but not on the same level as Bono Mack living in Florida with her fellow congressman husband.

          •  Bono Mack really is a complex situation (0+ / 0-)

            There have been other marriages - including the parents of Chelsea Clinton's husband's parents ( I can't remember the names).

            In her case, I assume she keeps an apartment or something in her district. It does mean that they likely rarely see their congresswoman and she likely has progressively less contact with people there. One would think,at some point, that they may vote her out.

              Marjorie Margolies Mezvinsky was a rep. from PA that lost in '94 because she cast the decisive vote for Clinton's budget. Her husband Edward Mezvinsky was a rep. from Iowa.
