Well, I missed last week.
As for the answer for the week before, the Treasurer of the United States works for the Secretary of the Treasury. Also, since President Harry Truman appointed Georgia Neese Clark, back in 1949, every Treasurer of the United States has been a woman.
The first Treasurer of the United States was Michael Hillegas. However, when the first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, was confirmed, Mr Hillegas resigned and was replaced by Samuel Meredith.
The incumbent is Rosa Gumataotao Rios.♠
But, on to this week's question.
Yesterday the Great and General Court held a hearing on changing the law regarding replacing a US Senator who has vacated his or her position.
The questions is, if the Governor appoints someone to be the "interim" US Senator (a suggested by the late Senator Ted Kennedy in a letter released a few weeks ago), will the law be constitutional in requiring a "temporary" appointee to resign so that someone subsequently elected can assume the seat? That is to say, will the plan work as Senator Kennedy suggested or is it fraught with Murphyisms?♥
