Massachusetts Judge OKs Kirk Appointment to Senate

George Wenschhof

AP is reporting Suffolk Superior Court Judge Thomas Connolly has rejected the Massachusetts GOP's request to delay the appointment of Paul Kirk to the vacant Kennedy U.S. Senate seat. You can read more here.

Yesterday, Governor Deval Patrick appointed Paul Kirk to the position after the state legislature had passed a bill permitting him to do so. The governor declared an emergency status to get around the normal 90 day period before a state law goes into effect.

Kirk is to be sworn in on the steps of the capitol in D.C. at 3:15 PM today.
