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.
