Election commission follies

News & Politics

The election commission is already looking like some wild west farce. You know the kind where the new guy moves into town and goes to the sheriff after his store is held up. The sheriff turns out to be the brother of the bandit and both are sons of the town's well-respected oil magnate? Like that. The man proposed as Co-Chair of the commission, James Baker III is a business partner and close personal friend of the pappy of the man who won the election in question. Come on people, please.
