    If I were Mitt Romney I'd be formatting a lawsuit. He was the person whose rights were violated. Conveniently.

    Democrats don't need to follow the law, that's for rubes and suckers, not for Disciples of Alinsky

    "Patrick got around that delay by signing a letter that declared the bill an emergency."

    Does the state constitution allow for that ? Did the bill have a date it was to take effect?

    The articles says bills "usually" take effect in 90 days. Is that a constitutional requirement? Or just custom?

    Massachusetts is a one party state (democrats) and is totally corrupted by party hacks

    C'mon, rightoid loonies. Give chapter and verse where and how said constitution was violated. Otherwise, politely, shut up because you have nothing to say worthwhile.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like what the governor did was constitutional.
