How is this constitutional?
(From Art I.3)
I think I already know the answer.
Joe Biden had turned 30 before he was sworn in.
According to Wiki, Joseph Biden was the fifth youngest Senator in history.
I don't have a clue who the other four may have been, but Ken H. is correct, as to the 'how' of it.
The same principal was at work when Hillary "went shopping" for a State or Commonwealth that had an open Senate seat. As long as she was a "resident" by the time she took her seat...
Looks like he was the youngest ever legally, properly, and constitutionally seated. His birthday is in late November so he was 30 before the seating in January.
Apparently there were a few (either 3-4) shady seating in the early 19th century, one senator being seated at 28 years of age.

Am I the only one who thinks this guy has a modern spiked hair style?
Bingo. It was a trick question :smilewinkgrin:
Residency is clearly spelled out in the constitution. You just have to live there at swearing in. The age thing is a little less clear.
