As for Leia being the youngest Senator, I believe she was elected in her late teens, whereas Padme says in "Clones" that they 'ammended the constitution' to allow her to serve multiple terms as queen, so she was probably 20 or so when she started.


nope they wanted to change the constitution so she could serve more terms but she didnt want to/feel it was right. havent seen the movie in a long time (right before sith came out) but pretty sure thats how it went.
