CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Gov. Joe Manchin appointed former chief counsel Carte Goodwin, a member of a prominent West Virginia family, on Friday to succeed the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd.


Manchin announced Goodwin's appointment during a packed afternoon news conference at the state Capitol.

Goodwin will sworn into the Senate on Tuesday. Right after the swearing in, the Senate leadership will move on the unemployment extension bill.....

Hmm, you think there might be any politics involved here?

Sorry for this sick joke, folks, but I think there was a Quid Croak Quo here. :mrgreen:

Article is here.

Does anybody have any thoughts on Goodwin's Senate appointment?
