  •  Neither do I... (5+ / 0-)

    There are more IMPORTANT issues that need attention. A special election is not just a waste of money. I think that those funds could be better used elsewhere.

    •  Yes, important issues, but the ethics investigatio (0+ / 0-)

      investigation is going forward.  That means Weiner and the Hill and the Press won't be focusing on those important issues.  They'll be focusing on the scandal.

      Based on your analysis, do you think it would have been better for Chris Lee to remain in office and serve out his term?  Would have saved some money.

      I tend to agree with KO on this one.  Weiner should resign, and then run in the special election.  Let the voters of NY-9 decide if he deserves to be their representative.

      •  The Press hasn't, doesn't, and won't be focusing (0+ / 0-)

        on those important issues. They will focus on Boehner's tan, Tea Party "bravery" (also known as stupidity), and how Social Security caused the Housing Bubble.

        I don't dislike all conservatives... mainly just the ones that vote Republican.

      •  As near as I can recall (0+ / 0-)

        IMHO the situations with Weiner & Lee appear to be similar, given my earlier comments about wasting money that would best be used somewhere else.
