Feingold calls for constitutional amendment requiring special elections
U.S Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., says he'll introduce a constitutional amendment this week to require special elections to fill vacant Senate seats.
The Wisconsin Democrat said the naming of Barack Obama's replacement from Illinois was too much of a spectacle and it was nothing like democracy.
Gov. Rod Blagojevich was indicted for trying to sell the Senate seat after Obama was elected president.
