When Pridemore doesn't get the appointment, will the others refuse?

So, the commissioner appointment is supposed to take place today.

Will it?

Pridemore has zero chance.  None.

And when he's passed over, what will the other two do?

Let's just say, for the sake of argument, that Ed "Lights Out" Barnes gets the gig.

What happens if he refuses it?

Will the commissioners adjourn?  (I would.)

Will they then get legal council as to whether or not three viable candidate's names were forwarded as the law calls for, when not all of those on the list would even take the job?

If, as I suspect, the ruling would be that because of the refusal of a candidate who's name was forwarded on the basis of their pledge to hold office their failure to live up to that pledge means the list was NOT submitted with the required 3 names on it, that the local democrats have not met their obligation to submit the names of 3 qualified candidates for this position... and that the 60 day clock hasn't even started running as a result, or that the commissioners are then free to appoint anyone they want, on the list or no, democrat or no?

Regardless: when Pridemore is passed over, the fringe-left nutters are going to get ugly.

And I wouldn't miss it for the world.
