Christmas in October is Scary

It would be theoretically possible, after the election, to discover who voted for a write-in candidate, since a record is kept of requests for a write-in ballot. But it would require going through all the paper ballots; the election commission does not compile such a list.

Interestingly, Tucker is the only candidate in any of the Council races not required to report contributions by the 15th of each month by city ordinance. The ordinance only requires that “any candidate that files a qualifying petition” report contributions. Write-in candidates don’t file a qualifying petition.

 

 

Roll Tide?

Last year Hutchison had a bet with Tuscaloosa County Sheriff Ted Sessions that forced Sessions to sport a Go Vols bumper sticker for a week. The same bet applied this year, and it was payback time in Tuscaloosa by the Alabama team that had lost nine out of the last 10 games to the Vols. The Tide prevailed 6-3. Sessions is president of the National Sheriff’s Association, and he and Hutchison took anti-terrorist training together in Israel last year.

Of course, if you see Hutchison driving around in a Prius, you’ll know his truck is locked up in his garage.
