Suit questions Bush-Cheney claim to TX votes

A federal lawsuit filed here Monday says George W. Bush and Dick Cheney can't legally claim Texas' 32 electoral votes because both are inhabitants of the state -- a violation of the 12th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The amendment prohibits a state's electors from voting for both a president and vice president from their state. Cheney has lived and worked in Texas for eight years but switched his voter registration to Wyoming in July to try to avoid the constitutional conflict.

Not havingthe 32 Texas electoral votes would probably send it to the House to decide the presidency.

I'm reminded of an ancient Chinese curse, "May you live in intresting times.."
