Cronyism in Seanad cannot be defended

I CANNOT be the only person who is disgusted by the Seanad being abused as a second bite at the cherry for candidates who failed in the general election.
There are several nominees who ran for election to the Dail, failed and then went straight for the election to Leinster House.
Is this democracy, when candidates from the main parties will run for anything just to secure a job with a nice pay cheque?
