  • A guy that dead can only be eligible to win elections. Vernon Jones (born October 31, 1960) is an American Democratic politician from Georgia who served as chief executive officer of Dekalb County, Georgia, from 2001 until 2009. Just because he lost the Senate election to incumbent Republican Saxby Chambliss does not mean that he is dead!

  • if his wife is dead he can marry any one he wants?

    If his former sister-in-law’s sister, Vernon’s former wife, is a widow, then Vernon is deceased. The law allowing the marriage of a living person to a dead person could indeed vary from state to state. Assuming this is the case, I wonder if the social conservatives’ constitutional amendment defining marriage will address this loophole, as it could impact many of their own marriages.

    You’re right, Paul.
    Vernon can’t marry his “widow’s” sister, because that would make him DEAD.
    You’re today’s winner.
