The Democrats legal infrastructure must be congenitally flawed. Everyone thought Indiana Democrats and Evan Bayh were so smart to time his announcement so that only the party apparatchik could coalesce quickly around the Democratic nominee. Not so fast.
Parker had hoped to call a meeting of the Democratic Party’s state central committee’s 32 voting members as early as next week. But after party attorneys researched state law, they discovered they could not fill the ballot vacancy until after the primary.
Only after they decide on a strategy do the Dems research to see if it’s legal.
