Is there any possible way around sore loser laws for a 3rd party run?Submitted by LibertyLady1031 on Fri, 06/15/2012 - 21:04
After I watched the doug wead chat yesterday, and heard him repeatedly say it's not possible, I started thinking about the 3rd party run and sore loser laws.
If Dr. Paul was to be chosen as the VP for a 3rd party candidate for POTUS (Johnson or any other liberty candidates) that wins the presidency, could the newly elected president just resign from the presidency, and then Ron (the vp) would be president?
I personally don't feel strongly about any 3rd party candidates that I'm aware are running. But if there is one running, or one that could go into the running (Woods, Napolitano, etc) that Ron trusts to execute this properly, then I'm all in if it's possible.
So, would this work, or not? Am I making it more simple than it is or what? Wouldn't he avoid sore loser laws this way? What do you guys think?
