Something happened at the BOE on election day

The Montgomery County Board of Elections is a very odd place. It has all kinds of power- but, no one there is elected by you or me- and, for every single position- there has to be two people, one Dem, one Republican. So, considering they only have a few actual elections each year- the rest of the time is spent… well, maintaining voter records, going over politicians finance reports- and trying to outmaneuver the other party. Oh, yes- and collecting paychecks.

It’s a great place to get a patronage job- where you can hang out and get paid- only having to work really hard a few days a year.

Last Tuesday, May 4, 2010, was one of those gotta work days. And, apparently, there was a casualty- one very connected Dem got put in time-out, and the wagons have circled. Unfortunately, I’m not privy to the why- or what exactly happened, but, I figure if I post this- someone will want to comment anonymously and fill in the details.

So, if you have a tip, or tips, on what happened to one of the party faithful- please share.

Thank you.

Wonder if that’s why it’s 8 days after the election and there have been no updates on the status of the results…


See the DDN article just posted a few minutes ago!


A story about no details makes me feel so much better. *insert sarcasm sign here*


There isn’t any update on the elections results because the election will not be certified until Tuesday.  The Board cannot begin the certification process until 10 days after the election to give time for those who voted provisionally to provide I.D. if they did not do so at the polls as well as to allow time for absentee ballots to be received provided that those ballots were postmarked on or prior to Election Day.
