There are plenty of voting problems in North Carolina, but they nearly pale in comparison to those in Santa Ana (California). Apparently the voters there elected a near-unknown to a position on the school board. Steve Rocco had apparently failed in at least two previous political campaigns (though not for the same position).
Personally, I think this is cool. A candidate who spent nothing, showed up nowhere and actually won? What will those crazy Californians do next? Surely they realize that if this keeps up, there’s going to be a few hundred million in spare change sitting around come the next presidential election, since it’s apparently not important to advertise!
