McNinch says Rector should have never ran

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Professor Ron McNinch continues to question whether Senator Matt Rector should even be allowed to retain his seat in the Guam Legislature.  In a letter to Speaker Judi Won Pat, McNinch cites the mason's manual of procedures under the section that states each house of the Legislature is the judge of the election and qualification of its members.

However, McNinch argues that Rector was never eligible to run for office.  "If somebody should not be in the Legislature; they have the full power and authority to remove them. One other thing, this is not something the Legislature has to deal with hardly ever. Legislatures across the United States will hardly ever have to deal with a person who has faked their way into office," said McNinch.

Speaker Won Pat says she has yet to review any letter from McNinch.
